Cardiac and Vascular Group

The Cardiac and Vascular Group at Medtronic includes the Cardiac Rhythm Disease Management (CRDM) and CardioVascular businesses. The Group had worldwide sales in the quarter of $2.253 billion, representing an increase of 4 percent on a constant currency basis or 3 percent as reported. Cardiac and Vascular Group international sales of $1.288 billion increased 5 percent on a constant currency basis or 3 percent as reported. Group revenue performance was driven by Coronary, Transcatheter Valves, Endovascular, AF Solutions, Renal Denervation, and Peripheral, partially offset by small declines in Pacing and Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs).

CRDM revenue of $1.295 billion was flat on a constant currency basis or down 2 percent as reported. Fourth quarter revenue from ICDs was $744 million, down 1 percent on a constant currency basis, while pacing revenue was $492 million, a decrease of 2 percent on a constant currency basis. Continued growth of the AF Solutions business offset weaker ICD and Pacing sales.

CardioVascular revenue of $958 million grew 10 percent on a constant currency basis or 9 percent as reported. The Coronary business grew worldwide revenue 12 percent on a constant currency basis and U.S. revenue 24 percent on the impressive launch of the Resolute™ Integrity® drug-eluting stent, resulting in a doubling of U.S. drug-eluting stent market share. The Structural Heart and Endovascular & Peripheral businesses grew worldwide revenue 7 percent and 10 percent, respectively, on a constant currency basis.

Restorative Therapies Group

The Restorative Therapies Group at Medtronic includes the Spine, Neuromodulation, Diabetes, and Surgical Technologies businesses. The Group had worldwide sales in the quarter of $2.044 billion, representing an increase of 4 percent as reported and on a constant currency basis. Group revenue was driven by solid performances in Surgical Technologies, Neuromodulation, and Diabetes, partially offset by declines in U.S. Spine. Restorative Therapies Group international sales of $710 million increased 11 percent on a constant currency basis or 9 percent as reported.

Spine revenue of $818 million declined 6 percent on a constant currency basis or declined 7 percent as reported. International sales for the Spine business increased 8 percent on a constant currency basis. Core Spine revenue of $629 million, which includes core metal constructs, interspinous process decompression devices, and balloon kyphoplasty products, declined 3 percent on a constant currency basis. Biologics revenue of $189 million declined 16 percent on a constant currency basis, driven by declines in U.S. sales of INFUSE®, partially offset by revenue growth in Other Biologics.

Neuromodulation revenue of $463 million increased 8 percent on a constant currency basis or 7 percent as reported. Growth was driven by an increase in new implants in pain stimulation, deep brain stimulation (DBS), and stimulation for incontinence indications. Growth in pain stimulation was driven by the successful U.S. and Japan launches of the RestoreSensor® spinal cord stimulator with its proprietary AdaptiveStim® technology. Sales of DBS products were driven by an increased focus on neurologist referrals. In Uro/Gastro, sales of InterStim® Therapy for both urinary and bowel indications drove growth.

Diabetes revenue of $392 million grew 8 percent on a constant currency basis or 7 percent as reported. Growth in the quarter was driven by strong sales of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) products and consumables. The Enlite™ CGM sensor had solid growth in Europe, and the company continues to make progress on its IDE study for U.S. approval of this next generation sensor.

Surgical Technologies revenue of $371 million grew 25 percent on a constant currency basis or 24 percent as reported. Organic revenue growth accelerated to 14 percent, after adjusting for $34 million of revenue from the Advanced Energy business, consisting of the company's Salient Surgical Technologies and PEAK Surgical acquisitions. Revenue growth was driven by strong sales of capital equipment in the ENT and Navigation businesses.
