DaVita Kidney Care, Medtronic partner to better understand cardiovascular health in ESRD patients

DaVita Kidney Care, a division of DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. (NYSE: DVA) and leading provider of kidney care services, announced today a collaboration with Medtronic, Inc., to better understand cardiovascular health in end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. The collaboration will focus on developing a pilot program using Medtronic's Reveal LINQ™ Insertable Cardiac Monitoring system to identify cardiac arrhythmias in patients receiving dialysis.

"Medtronic recently announced data at the American Society of Nephrology meeting that showed a higher incidence of arrhythmias in patients receiving hemodialysis," said Ven Manda, vice president, Renal Care Solutions at Medtronic. "We are pleased to pursue this collaboration with DaVita to monitor more patients and gather additional data that will further our understanding of the relationship between dialysis and cardiac events in ESRD patients."

"Given the high incidence rate of cardiovascular disease and events in ESRD patients, we believe that by collaborating with Medtronic, we can gain knowledge to help improve the lives of ESRD patients," said Mahesh Krishnan, vice president for clinical innovation and public policy for DaVita HealthCare Partners. "Through the collaboration we expect to utilize innovative monitoring technology and data from our DaVita Kidney Care information systems across the country. This effort is poised to improve the lives of patients by proactively detecting and preventing cardiac complications."
