Medtronic units to pay $31 mln to resolve U.S. medical device probes

BOSTON, Dec 4 (Reuters) - Two companies now owned by Medtronic Plc will pay $30.9 million to resolve claims that they marketed a medical device for unapproved purposes and paid kickbacks to hospitals in exchange for them using a second device.
