Medtronic GU business drops Vision-Sciences' urology products:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Vision-Sciences, the Natick, Massachusetts developer of flexible endoscopes, is to sell its urology products directly to customers in the US and Canada after its distribution agreement with Medtronic Gastroenterology/Urology (MGU) was terminated. MGU said it was reducing the number of uro-diagnostics products it was offering - including Vision Sciences' flexible cystoscope and slide-on Endosheath system - as it wanted to focus more on treatment products. To ensure a smooth transition of sales and services to customers, MGU will continue to take orders from the existing base and provide technical support up to November. The termination of this agreement does not affect another distribution arrangement between the two companies concerning Vision-Sciences' ENT products.
