Description

The Wall Street Journal's alarming revelations about a once common medical procedure had the powerful and lasting impact of saving lives. After nearly a year of Journal reporting, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration imposed strict limits on the device involved in the procedure. Doctors and hospitals curbed or abandoned the practice. Johnson & Johnson, the top manufacturer, pulled the device off the market. And women undergoing surgery were now armed with information that, for many, could determine life or death.
