The complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and misleading statements concerning the safety and efficacy of the da Vinci Surgical System, a system that allows for laparoscopic surgery through the use of robotic manipulators. The complaint alleges that the true facts, concealed from the investing public, include the following: (a) that defects in the da Vinci system had caused a substantial number of patient injuries and deaths resulting in a substantial number of adverse incident reports; (b) that not all of the adverse incidents were reported to the FDA; and (c) that as a result of such adverse incidents, Intuitive exposed itself to potential civil liability and criminal sanctions.
