Medtronic RTG - Restorative Therapies Group

Eye opening, indeed. It's clear that Mazor wasn't handling cases and adverse events the way they should have, How is Medtronic handling these events differently? There has to be a concern for the patient and it does seem that Mazor could not be bothered.

The guest speaker was right -

The Department of Homeland Security and Medtronic are advising people with the latter's implantable defibrillators to keep their monitors and programmers updated and in sight. A warning issued by the department says over 20 Medtronic products are afflicted with vulnerabilities that could be exploited by attackers nearby.

Nevro Senza vs. Medtronic

Great for Medtronic and Edwards but bad for patients in the hands of surgeons with less than stellar hands.

It's actually a $6 billion buyback which is in addition to the $5 billion plan that was authorized in 2017. As the purchases do not happen all at the same time, there is still $1.3 billion left on the $5 billion plan from 2017. This would help explain some of the 28% increase MDT has seen over the last 2 years.

Medtronic DBS

Had this indication been approved 7-8 years ago, it would have been a big deal for the therapy. But the adoption of RNS and laser ablation has disrupted the Epilepsy space. MDT will be focused on defending share against the new BSX system which is very impressive.
