Segmental Analysis

Vascular Interventions and Therapies (VIT) Business

VIT sales in the quarter grossed $50 million, up marginally from the year-ago quarter's $49.9 million. Per management, growth in Fluid Management, Angiographic Catheters and AngioVac was offset by declines in the Venous Insufficiency business.

Vascular Access (VA) Business

Revenues at this segment came in at $23.8 million, up 2.4% on a year-over-year basis. Per management, growth in Ports, Dialysis and Midline products was partially offset by a decline in PICC sales.

Oncology/Surgery Business

Oncology sales fell 6.1% year over year to $11.6 million as NanoKnife disposable growth was more than offset by decline in sales of Radiofrequency Ablation and Microwave products. Per management, the segment was impacted by the timing of the prior-year Acculis Microwave Ablation system market withdrawal.
