«Medtronic Neurovascular and Avail Medsystems have signed an agreement to use Avail’s operating room consoles during stroke procedures, the leaders of both businesses told Medical Design & Outsourcing this week.»

«Medtronic will pay to place several hundred Avail consoles around the U.S. in the next few years. The deal enables the medtech giant to connect virtually with neurosurgeons, Medtronic Neurovascular President Dan Volz said in an interview.
