William Blair says it would not be surprised to see another bidder emerge for ArthroCare (ARTC). The firm lists Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Stryker (SYK)) as the most likely to submit a competing bid to Smith & Nephew's (SNN), and notes Biomet, Zimmer (ZMH) and Covidien (COV) could also have interest in the company. Should the deal for ArthroCare close as currently contemplated, William Blair thinks peers Globus Medical (GMED), NuVasive (NUVA) and Wright Medical (WMGI) could be takeover targets.

18:07 EDTCOVCovidien' VenaSeal closure system shows positive results
Covidien announced the six-month results of the VeClose pivotal study of the safety and effectiveness of the VenaSeal closure system in patients with chronic venous insufficiency having symptomatic reflux in the great saphenous vein. The VeClose randomized controlled non-inferiority study compared the safety and effectiveness of the VenaSeal system to that of the ClosureFast endovenous radiofrequency ablation catheter. Covidien's ClosureFast catheter is an endovenous radiofrequency ablation catheter designed to collapse and close enlarged leg veins. The VenaSeal system is not approved and currently limited to investigational use in the U.S. At three months, the complete closure of the great saphenous veins achieved in more than 98.9% of patients treated with the VenaSeal system compared to 95.6% of patients treated with the ClosureFast catheter. The closure rate at six months was 98.9% and 94.3%.
