Medtronic (MDT +1.1%) gains after saying it's released its CardioGuide Implant System, a real-time navigation system for pacemakers and defibrillators in the U.S. and Canada. The system helps physicians determine the most appropriate location for left-ventricular lead placement by generating 3-D images of the cardiac veins. Enhanced software for the system will be commercially available later this year that also analyzes the motion of select cardiac vessels on the left side of the heart.
