Today marks the end of the 1st quarter, any thoughts on how many units the company placed into the marketplace for the quarter? I believe Mgt. had indicated early in 2011 that they had expectation of a 100 units per quarter. The 4th quarter came in at 165 units. regards endo
Sorry, don't really have a handle on this yet. Based on anecdotal evidence from ISRG it seems like adoption of FireFly is going very well. The hard part is knowing whether ISRG's portion of the 165 was a bolus order or whether that number more or less represented ISRG's Q4 placements. As I recall NVDQ said that ISRG represented the larger contribution. So call it 85 for ISRG in Q4. I think between the two partners they should be able to meet their 100 per qtr goal despite the fact that Q1 is a seasonally slow qtr for medical device spending.
