NEW YORK, March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- PricewaterhouseCoopers announced today that it will present findings from an independent study of international market conditions for medical device innovation at the 2010 International Medical Device Industry Compliance Congress.  The conference, which is one of the largest international gatherings of medical device companies in the world, is being held in Berlin, Germany, May 3-5, 2010.

PricewaterhouseCoopers conducted the independent study to help its clients, patient advocacy groups, regulators, ministers of health and other government and health industry leaders to better understand the ability of patients to access innovative medical technology in their own territories, the opportunities for economic development as well as product development, manufacturing and commercial market opportunities for medical device companies seeking to expand both domestically and internationally.
