St Jude Medical (US) is developing a less-invasive heart valve procedure in association with Heartport (US). The two companies, which have been collaborating for almost a year, announced the agreement at the Dane Bosworth healthcare conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, last week. Preclinical evaluation of the technique has already been completed and Heartport expects to file an IDE with the US FDA shortly.
