"Medtronic gets OK to sell heart device in Europe
 
Medtronic said it will immediately roll out in Europe, the Middle East and Asia -- more than 40 countries in all -- its Endeavor drug-eluting stent, a tiny, wire mesh tube coated with medicine that props open arteries during angioplasty procedures.
Minneapolis-based Medtronic is still conducting clinical trials in the United States and does not expect to have the device on the U.S. market, estimated at about $3.5 billion, until 2007. Ward said its U.S. trial is on track."

We can sure use all the help they can give us - Here's hoping that these new stents are even better than the others!

Bob,
 
OMGosh, a 'full metal jacket'?  What a name, but I suppose appropriate!  I'm glad that they were able to help you and I'm certainly happy to hear that you are getting around more!!
You take care and just 'lurk' all you want! yeah
 
Love and Hugs from Texas!!  Teri tongue
