Vascular specialists at Carolinas HealthCare System in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio perform the initial implants of a novel stent graft system from Medtronic (MDT +1%) as part of an FDA initiative designed to encourage more early-stage clinical research on new medical devices in the U.S. The implants are among the first to be performed under the agency's early feasibility pilot program, which includes a total of nine medical devices from different companies.
