NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., Sept. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) today announced that it has completed the acquisition of Micrus Endovascular, a global developer and manufacturer of minimally invasive devices for hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke.  Johnson & Johnson announced its agreement to acquire Micrus on July 12, 2010.
