UNITED STATES SURGICAL ISSUES SECOND QUARTER STATUS REPORT

 NORWALK, Conn., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Leon C. Hirsch, chairman of United States Surgical Corporation (NYSE: USS), announced today that the company now expects the second quarter to show a decrease in sales over last year's comparable period and a net loss.
 The shortfall is attributed to increased competitive price pressure and larger than anticipated inventories on the shelves of hospitals serviced by Just-In-Time (JIT) distributors, which has resulted in lower than expected distributor reorders.
 The company believes that it will show a significant improvement in the third quarter over the second quarter and a further improvement in the fourth quarter.
 United States Surgical Corporation is the world's largest manufacturer and marketer of surgical staplers, the leader in the growing field of minimally invasive surgery and a recent entrant into the suture market.
