07:26 EDTGMED, WMGI, SNN, NUVA, MDTOrtho consolidation likely in 'early innings,' says Leerink
Leerink says consolidation in the ortho space is likely in the "early innings" after reports surfaced that Medtronic (MDT) is considering a bid for Smith & Nephew (SNN). The firm views Smith & Nephew's product portfolio as "highly complementary" to Medtronic, and estimates the potential deal would be meaningfully dilutive in year one and likely neutral to accretive thereafter. Leerink notes that recent Smith & Nephew takeover reports have pressured small cap names in the space, namely Globus Medical (GMED), NuVasive (NUVA) and Wright Medical (WMGI), all of which are considered potential acquisition targets. The firm expects the large deals to get done first, with attention then turning to small-to-mid sized acquisitions. It reiterates Outperform ratings on Globus, NuVasive and NuVasive.

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."
