Executive Summary

Minneapolis-based firm begins shipments of its Model 9790 portable programmer, approved Nov. 18 by FDA via PMA supplement. Medtronic says the 9790 can be used with all Medtronic pacers and defibrillators but is specifically designed for use with the firm's Thera pacemakers and Jewel PCD defibrillators, both of which are still in clinical trials in the U.S. The 18-pound device is more portable than Medtronic's earlier generation 9760 and 9710 devices, the company says. The 9790 carries a list price of $19,000, but many of the systems will be loaned to hospitals using Medtronic pacers and defibrillators
