Item 7.01.
Regulation FD Disclosure.

As previously announced, Medtronic plc (the “Company”) today will host a Robotic-Assisted Surgery (RAS) Investor Update in Hartford, Conn., for analysts and investors from 2:00 p.m. to approximately 5:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.

Medtronic will host a live audio webcast of the RAS Investor Update today which, along with slides, can be accessed by clicking on the Investor Events link at http://investorrelations.medtronic.com on September 24, 2019. An archived audio file will be available for replay on the same webpage later in the day and will be available for approximately twelve months.

The Investor Update will include a RAS prostatectomy procedure performed in a cadaveric lab as part of the Medtronic Minimally Invasive Therapy Group’s ongoing development and testing process of its RAS technology, as well as a short procedure overview with pre-recorded video from a recent cadaveric procedure that was also part of the Company’s ongoing development and testing process. Medtronic’s RAS technology is currently under development. Participants should not infer indications for use. The system is not cleared or approved in any market and is not available for sale or clinical use. In addition, the update will include remarks and responses to audience questions from a panel of surgeons and Medtronic management. Management Q&A is scheduled to begin at approximately 4:15 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, or shortly thereafter. All procedure footage will be narrated.

The investigational system that will be shown in the update includes a tower, surgeon console, surgical end effectors, and robotic arm carts. The objective of the tower design is to provide a solution that is (1) universal (both RAS and laparoscopic applications), (2) upgradeable, and (3) modular. The surgeon console design aims to provide (1) an open architecture and (2) a three-dimensional, high-definition visualization. The surgical end effector design aims to (1) take advantage of the expertise, know-how, and IP of our existing MITG surgical instrumentation portfolio, and (2) use across a broad spectrum of surgical procedures. The robotic arm cart design aims to provide a solution that is (1) modular and portable, (2) allows for flexible positioning (use one or up to four arms), and (3) uses Medtronic end effectors.

Medtronic’s robotic-assisted surgical system is an investigational device currently under development. Safety and effectiveness of the system has not been established. The system is not cleared or approved in any market and is not available for sale or clinical use.
