Bard has acquired American Hydro-Surgical Instruments in a stock-for-stock merger. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but the deal will be accounted for as a pooling of interests, says Bard. AHS manufactures irrigation instruments used in laparoscopic procedures. Bard chairman and CEO William Longfield believes AHS products will be consolidated with Bard's Davol division's line of suction and irrigation products.
