14:08 EDTMDTDaVita announces collaboration with Medtronic
DaVita Kidney Care, a division of DaVita HealthCare Partners (DVA) and leading provider of kidney care services, announced a collaboration with Medtronic (MDT) to better understand cardiovascular health in end stage renal disease, ESRD patients. The collaboration will focus on developing a pilot program using Medtronic's Reveal LINQ Insertable Cardiac Monitoring system to identify cardiac arrhythmias in patients receiving dialysis. "Medtronic recently announced data at the American Society of Nephrology meeting that showed a higher incidence of arrhythmias in patients receiving hemodialysis," said Ven Manda, vice president, Renal Care Solutions at Medtronic. "We are pleased to pursue this collaboration with DaVita to monitor more patients and gather additional data that will further our understanding of the relationship between dialysis and cardiac events in ESRD patients." "Given the high incidence rate of cardiovascular disease and events in ESRD patients, we believe that by collaborating with Medtronic, we can gain knowledge to help improve the lives of ESRD patients," said Mahesh Krishnan, vice president for clinical innovation and public policy for DaVita HealthCare Partners. "Through the collaboration we expect to utilize innovative monitoring technology and data from our DaVita Kidney Care information systems across the country. This effort is poised to improve the lives of patients by proactively detecting and preventing cardiac complications."

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%.
