3/7/2013 9:10:22 AM

Medtronic wins CE Mark approval in the European Union for its Attain Performa Quadripolar leads and begins product launch in Europe. Medtronic (NYSE:MDT), the world's largest pure-play medical device company, won European regulatory approval for its Attain Performa cardiac lead portfolio. The new product is designed to be paired with Medtronic's Viva/Brava cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators, already on the market in Europe, to offer doctors more variation with electrode placement and pacing configuration. The Attain Performa product has 3 different lead configurations to account for different body shapes.
