Boston Scientific FDA Approval Granted
On November 30, 2011, Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) announced FDA approval of its INCEPTA™, ENERGEN™ and PUNCTUA™ cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators and implantable cardioverter defibrillators to treat heart failure and sudden cardiac death. The new devices offer enhanced therapy options, advanced battery longevity and a DF4 universal connector system in the industry's smallest and thinnest platform. The 4-SITE DF4 connector system reduces the volume of Boston Scientific's single-chamber ICDs to 30.5cc and CRT-Ds to 32cc, while maintaining a thickness of less than 10mm. The system is also designed to simplify and reduce the time needed for the implant procedure by combining three separate lead terminals into one integrated connection and leveraging the new EZ-4™ Connector Tool which allows physicians to reduce the number of steps required during implant. These next-generation devices also include options to promote appropriate therapy, reduce right ventricular pacing, and improve patient management through the availability of the LATITUDE® Heart Failure Management weight scale and blood pressure cuff sensors.
