Medtronic Inc. (MDT), the world’s largest maker of heart rhythm devices, will enter the kidney dialysis business in collaboration with India’s Apollo Hospitals Enterprise Ltd. Medtronic is developing a new approach to hemodialysis, which filters toxins from the blood of people with kidneys too damaged to do the job. The companies will work to craft a system by 2016 that functions well in the developing world, with a low-cost, portable approach that doesn’t rely heavily on infrastructure, said Ven Manda, vice present of science, technology and new therapies at Minneapolis-based Medtronic.
