The listing has been expanded to include: a series of Taxus Liberte coronary stents, manufactured by Boston Scientific; a series of urogenital implants and accessories in the Ethicon TVT series of urogenital implants for sub-urethral support; Embogold micropheres, manufactured by Biopshere Medical, as arterial embolisation implants; and a series of Microval-Intra implants, for umbilical hernias and ruptures.
