Boston Scientific Corp. (NYSE: BSX) has recalled more than 500 stent systems in its second recall for a potentially life-threatening defect to be disclosed this week. The stent may fail to deploy or partially deploy, the company said. A partial deployment could injure vessel walls or necessitate emergency surgery.

Natick-based Boston Scientific said the affected products are Innova Over-the-Wire Self-Expanding stent systems, which are used to treat “symptomatic de novo or restenotic lesions in the native superficial femoral artery (SFA) and/or proximal popliteal artery.”
