April 17 (Reuters) - Abbott Laboratories Inc reported first-quarter sales ahead of Wall Street expectations on Wednesday, on double digit growth of its Freestyle Libre glucose monitoring device and as more of its heart valves were used in surgical procedures.

The company, whose products range from medical devices to infant nutritional formula, posted net earnings of $672 million, or 38 cents per share, in the first quarter ended March 31, from $418 million, or 23 cents per share.
