Teva closes Paragard sale to CooperSurgical

Teva Pharmaceuticals (NYSE:TEVA) said today that it closed the $1.1 billion cash sale of its Paragard intrauterine copper contraceptive device to Cooper Cos.‘ (NYSE:COO) CooperSurgical unit. The deal included Teva’s manufacturing facility in Buffalo, N.Y., the pharma company reported. The move is part of Teva’s efforts to restructure its business, narrowing its focus on CNS and respiratory conditions. The company also plans to divest of its oncology and pain businesses in Europe. In September, Teva inked deals to sell off the rest of its women’s health biz. “With completion of the sale of Paragard, Teva demonstrates strong execution of our strategic divestiture plan,” Teva’s out-going president &CEO Yitzhak Peterburg said in prepared remarks. “We now have an infusion of $1.1 billion to progress the repayment of term loan debt and are on track to deliver on our promise to generate net proceeds of at least $2 billion from the divestiture of non-core assets. We are very pleased to have completed this sale to CooperSurgical which will help to not only allow for greater focus within Teva’s global specialty medicines business but also assure that patients in the U.S. continue to benefit from access to this important contraceptive product.” The post Teva closes Paragard sale to CooperSurgical appeared first on MassDevice.

We report two cases of patients with shoulder pain in which different radiological approaches were used with pathological confirmation in one of them. In the first case, MRI revealed significant bone involvement in the head of the humerus and cortical erosion of the greater tuberosity. A CT examination and a biopsy was necessary for a final diagnosis of inflammatory bone reaction from intraosseous migration of tendinous calcifications. In the second case, similar MRI findings prompted re-evaluation of imaging to make a diagnosis of intraosseous migration of tendinous calcifications, obviating the need to perform CT and bio...

AbstractThree adult patients are described with sonographic features of subfascial fat hernation. Each patient presented to the musculoskeletal ultrasound department at our institution for the evaluation of a palpable mass of the low back. Subfascial fat hernation, also known as back mice and fibro-fatty nodule, are an uncommon cause of a palpable mass in the low back or low back pain. They are small mobile subcutaneous nodules in a characteristic location near the posterior superior iliac spine. This entity has not been described in the radiology literature. These cases are presented in order to demonstrate the sonographi...

CONCLUSION: The goals of elbow rehabilitation following Neglected Monteggia cases include restoring function by restoring motion and muscle performance; influencing scar remodeling and preventing joint contracture; and restoring or maintaining joint stability. Patients aged younger than 10 years and intervals of less than one-year, between trauma and diagnosis, as well as early and effective rehabilitation were found as important parameters regarding favorable outcomes.

CONCLUSION: Electrical impedance of the torso is associated with the pressure pain threshold of myofascial trigger points on the upper trapezius of individuals with neck pain. Thus, individuals with a lower pressure pain threshold have higher electrical impedance values of the torso and vice versa. PMID: 29154261 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
