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.

Omar must love the endo stapling/vessel sealing division, advanced energy because the division is growing and what they have to pay the reps for what they make is criminal.
