    What can they say Nov. 4?

    Unless the FDA approves the stapler CRDC won't have much to say.

    They are like ISRG and their new stapler (which is NOT the CRDC technology). It takes about a year to slowly get the technology into the field and ensure it's being used correctly and make necessary iterations. I'm glad to see ISRG use the same verbiage that CRDC uses regarding their stapler and launch.

    CRDC has stated clearly not to expect significant revenue (yet) from the micro cutter and EU sales.

    CRDC has stated clearly that they think approval will be delayed until 1Q14 (although FDA could approve it within the next 30 days which closes out the 90 day timeline).

    I am disappointed the market is not giving CRDC the anticipated appreciation for the microcutter and the likely approval, whether it be in 30 days or 1Q14.

    The micro cutter is small and has greater articulation but is it too dainty? Will surgeons want a more robust stapler during critical surgeries. Will the microcutter be treated as a specialty stapler limiting its market potential?

    Let's hope for positive input from surgeons using the stapler, CRDC needs to get the horns out and let Horton know they are in WhoVille.
