SCHNEIDER LAUNCHES NEW 7 FRENCH GUIDING CATHETER

 NEW YORK, Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Schneider (USA) Inc., a unit of the Hospital Products Group of Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE), has announced that it has begun marketing its new 7 French guiding catheter called the SOLID-7 SOFTIP(A).
 This new guiding catheter features several performance improvements including higher torque and increased back-up support for other delivered angioplasty devices in the same large lumen diameter (.072") size currently offered by Schneider. It also incorporates the original patented SOFTIP bulbous soft tip design that reduces the risk of vascular trauma during angioplasty.
 U.S. sales of 7 French guiding catheters are growing faster than sales of larger size guiding catheters, Schneider said. Increasingly, cardiologists are using the smaller French size catheters to minimize patient hospitalization following angioplasty procedures.
 Headquartered in Plymouth, Minn., Schneider (USA) is a leader in advanced angioplasty and angiography products. Pfizer Inc is a diversified, research-based health care company with global operations. Pfizer reported sales of $6.95 billion for 1991.
 (A) SOLID-7 is a trademark and SOFTIP is a registered trademark of Schneider (USA) Inc.
