echte fickdates Karlsruhe - Biotronik single chamber icd
“So far, single-chamber ICDs were limited to ventricular information for the discrimination of SVTs. Curnis was the principal investigator of the Italian ADAMO registry that already proved the high sensitivity and specificity of the SMART algorithm in a similar BIOTRONIK ICD system. The SMART algorithm also uses the additional information from the atrium and has proven reliable sensitivity and high specificity in dual-chamber ICDs, and now I can offer this technology to my single-chamber ICD patients too,” said Prof. Antonio Curnis from Spedali Civili in Brescia, at the University of Brescia in Italy after the first implantation of the DX system on March 16. S DX rely on proven technology platforms, representing BIOTRONIK’s continuing commitment to provide the highest-quality solutions for advanced management of cardiovascular diseases.
The additional atrial information can be used for advanced discrimination of supraventricular tachycardias (SVTs) to avoid inappropriate ICD shock therapies and for diagnostic purposes for early detection of atrial arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation (AF), to reduce the risk of stroke. Known for having its finger on the pulse of the medical community, BIOTRONIK assesses the challenges physicians face, and provides the best solutions for all phases of patient care, ranging from diagnosis to treatment to patient management.
World’s first and only single-chamber ICD designed for early detection and diagnosis of AF After receiving the CE mark, the first Lumax DX Systems were successfully implanted simultaneously at six hospitals across Europe during the third week of March. Quality, innovation and reliability define BIOTRONIK and its growing success, and deliver confidence and peace of mind to physicians and their patients worldwide.
Also, I can monitor the success of my AF therapies remotely with BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring S DX master study, after the first implantation on March 18.
Lumax 540 VR-T DX uses the advanced BIOTRONIK SMART Detection algorithm that analyzes the ventricular as well as the atrial heart rate to appropriately discriminate supraventricular tachycardias from ventricular tachycardias and thereby reduce the number of inappropriate therapies and ensure that a shock is only delivered when absolutely required.
The unique Lumax DX System provides patients at risk of sudden cardiac death with a single-chamber ICD system that provides protection and reduces risk. More information: publication, please provide us with a copy.
