Information about the minimally invasive procedure to treat peripheral artery disease (PAD) using IN.PACT Admiral drug-coated balloon.
Cardiac Rhythm and Heart Failure Management
Information about the minimally invasive procedure to treat medication-resistant paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) using the Arctic Front Advance™ Cardiac CryoAblation system.
Information about devices used for Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy.
Information about devices surgically implanted in the chest to continuously monitor hearts that tend to beat dangerously fast and deliver corrective electrical impulses when required. An ICD is often known as "an emergency room in your chest."
The Medtronic CareLink Network is the industry's leading and longest-running remote monitoring system. CareLink provides health care providers and patients the convenience of telemedicine by remotely monitoring patients implanted with Medtronic cardiac devices and providing comprehensive data received from the implanted cardiac devices to their physicians.
Information about devices implanted in the chest to treat hearts that tend to beat too slowly to support the needs of the human circulatory system.
Information about the Reveal LINQ ICM – a miniaturized implantable cardiac monitor designed to help physicians quickly and accurately diagnose irregular heartbeats.
Information about the Reveal DX & XT implantable cardiac monitors that give physicians valuable insights into heart rhythms, monitoring the heart for up to three years and helping identify the cause of unexplained fainting.
The SEEQ™ MCT System is an external heart monitor that can be prescribed for up to 30 days to help detect and diagnose the cause of irregular heartbeats in patients.
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a sudden, abrupt loss of heart function. Most SCA episodes are caused by the rapid and/or chaotic activity of the heart known as ventricular tachycardia (VT) or ventricular fibrillation (VF). These are abnormalities of the heart’s electrical conduction system. SCA claims the lives of nearly 1,000 Americans each day – many of these deaths are preventable.
Coronary and Structural Heart Disease Management
Information about a new approach to traditional bypass surgery.
Information about coronary artery disease (CAD) and its minimally invasive treatment with the Resolute Integrity Drug-Eluting Stent.
Information about heart valve disease and heart valve replacement.
The Medtronic CoreValve® Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) System is approved by the FDA to treat patients with severe aortic stenosis who are considered at high or extreme risk for open-heart surgery.
Information about the Melody® Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve, which offers a non-surgical valve replacement option for congenital heart disease patients. Melody is the first transcatheter heart valve to receive FDA approval and represents a significant development in the treatment of congenital heart disease.

Information about the AdaptiveStim™ with RestoreSensor™ neurostimulation system, the first and only chronic pain treatment that harnesses motion sensor technology found in smart phones and computer gaming systems to provide effective pain relief and convenience by automatically adapting stimulation levels to the needs of people with chronic back and/or leg pain.
Information about renal denervation, an investigational treatment for uncontrolled hypertension in the United States. Renal denervation is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Its use in the United States is limited by U.S. law to clinical studies approved by the FDA.

Information about INFUSE® Bone Graft for use in the treatment of acute, open tibia fractures in adults.
Information about the use of INFUSE® Bone Graft with the LT-CAGE® Lumbar Tapered Fusion Device to treat degenerative disc disease; it's estimated that, in 2002, more than 190,000 Americans will undergo lumbar spinal fusion surgeries to ease their debilitating back pain and get them back on their feet. INFUSE® Bone Graft contains recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein (rhBMP-2), the genetically engineered version of a naturally occurring protein that is capable of initiating bone growth, or bone regeneration, in specific, targeted areas in the spine. Using INFUSE® Bone Graft with the LT-CAGE® device in spine surgery reduces the pain and complications associated with treating degenerative disc disease by eliminating the second surgery required to harvest bone from a patient’s hip, as is done in traditional spinal fusion procedures.
Information about a series of minimally invasive spinal surgery advances developed by Medtronic Sofamor Danek, which define a new direction for spinal surgery by allowing surgeons to perform surgery through incisions less than an inch in length while leaving muscle virtually intact. Products under the MAST banner include the CD HORIZON® SEXTANT™ Spinal System for spinal fusion, METRx™ MicroDiscectomy System for herniated discs and CD HORIZON® ECLIPSE® Spinal System for scoliosis.
