Which Medical Device (whichmedicaldevice.com) has announced the winners of its “Device of the Year” awards, based on assessment of reader feedback by the expert judging panel. The organisation is a UK-based, clinician-led endeavour to bring a bit of user-interaction into product choice, providing an almost Amazon-like opportunity for clinicians to comment and rate the performance of medical devices they encounter in the specialist areas of Interventional Radiology, Orthopaedics and Cardiology.
The overall winners of the awards by category are…. long pause to open envelope
Cardiology: Bridgepoint Medical’s CrossBoss CTO Catheter
Interventional Radiology: Amplatzer vascular Plug II from St Jude Medical
Orthopaedics: ALM Pelvic Replacement from Stanmore Orthopaedics

By the way, clinicians who like this site also like this one, which is similarly UK based and similarly intent on sharing medical technology information, with a European Clinician bias.
