Boston Scientific Corporation Analyst Notes 

On April 1, 2014, Boston Scientific Corporation (Boston Scientific) announced that real-world data on its S-ICD (Subcutaneous Implantable Defibrillator) System was presented online in the European Heart Journal. According to Boston Scientific, the interim analysis of the ongoing EFFORTLESS S-ICD registry (a post-market observational, non-randomized study), which evaluated 456 patients with a mean follow-up of 558 days, is the first real world study to date and confirms the clinical benefits of the S-ICD System in a broad range of patients at risk of sudden cardiac arrest. The Company claims that the S-ICD System provides protection for patients at risk of sudden cardiac arrest without touching the heart. "The EFFORTLESS registry publication provides even more supportive evidence for this innovative therapy. These long-term results in a large patient cohort are comparable to similar data for transvenous ICDs and should help physicians as they decide which patients are the best candidates for the S-ICD System," said Kenneth Stein, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Rhythm Management, Boston Scientific.

CareFusion Corporation Analyst Notes 

On April 1, 2014, CareFusion Corporation (CareFusion) introduced a hair removal system from Surgical Site Solutions - ClipVac® - designed exclusively for a new innovative clipper handle from CareFusion. "This exclusive ClipVac system design from Surgical Site Solutions continues to differentiate our surgical clippers in the industry," said Jan Creidenberg, Vice President and General Manager of Infection Prevention at CareFusion. "The combination of our innovative new clippers and the ClipVac system promotes best practices for hair removal prior to surgery." According to CareFusion, the ClipVac system connects to CareFusion's new surgical clippers and is designed to improve the current hair removal practice by using vacuum technology to capture hair clippings as the hair is cut at the source. The Company claims that this saves time by capturing an average of 98.5% of the hair and airborne contaminants at the source, reducing the need for a secondary process of clean up. Test data supports vacuum technology as a safe, highly effective and efficient alternative when hair removal is carried out in the surgical or ancillary setting.
