CONMED COMMENCES SELLING NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART PRODUCTS

 UTICA, N.Y., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- CONMED Corporation (NASDAQ: CNMD) today announced the kickoff of the domestic sales campaign for its newest products for laparoscopic surgery, the TroGard(R) Electronic Trocar System and Modular Instrument System for minimally invasive surgery.
 Trocars are surgical instruments which create the small punctures in a patient's abdominal wall to permit the use of minimally invasive surgical techniques. The company believes that its state-of-the-art TroGard(R) Electronic Trocar System increases safety and surgeon control by using familiar electrosurgical techniques to create the puncture rather than the mechanical force required by trocars presently marketed by other companies.
 The Modular Surgical Instruments for minimally invasive surgery are the latest generation of the company's line of laparoscopic surgical instruments. The Modular Design allows the surgeon to choose among three sets of modules consisting of the type of working tip, the manner of controlling electrosurgery and mode of suction/irrigation control. The Modular System permits the surgeon to, in effect, design his own ergonomic instrument.
 Eugene Corasanti, chairman of the board and president said, "Last week we concluded the sales training on these important new products for our surgical systems sales force. As of today, our sales people are marketing these products to selective surgeons throughout the United States. While we do not expect significant, incremental revenues from these products in the first quarter of 1993 because of the necessary length of customer evaluations, we do believe that the products will gain momentum during the course of 1993."
 CONMED is a manufacturer of electrosurgery and other medical products used primarily in hospital operating rooms and other critical care areas. The company distributes its products worldwide from manufacturing and warehousing facilities in Utica, N.Y. and Denver.
