Smith & Nephew's TRUCLEAR System: A Gold Standard for Removal of Intrauterine Polyps and Fibroids
Date:4/6/2011

ANDOVER, Mass., April 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Smith & Nephew's (NYSE: SNN; LSE: SN) Endoscopy Division today announced that its TRUCLEAR™ System, an operative hysteroscopy device for the removal of intrauterine polyps and fibroids, has surpassed the 30,000 procedure milestone.
