BIOTRONIK’s DX Technology Reaches Significant Milestone: 100,000 DX Devices Implanted

BIOTRONIK

BIOTRONIK introduced the milestone achievement of 100,000 implanted single lead implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) outfitted with DX Technology enabling direct atrial sensing for atrial fibrillation (AF) detection and monitoring. Because the introduction of this distinctive know-how in 2009, DX ICDs are used as we speak by clinicians in additional than 80 international locations world wide.

Dr. Andreas Hecker, President CRM/EP at BIOTRONIK

“Reaching this vital milestone, BIOTRONIK stands as a proud pioneer and accomplice in cardiac rhythm administration. Our dedication to high quality and concentrate on innovation units us aside, permitting us to introduce significant improvements out there, equivalent to DX Expertise, that make an actual distinction in sufferers’ lives. This milestone demonstrates our collective efforts and dedication to creating a constructive distinction and helps us outline a brand new commonplace in affected person care.”

DX Expertise

What makes DX Expertise so distinctive? The incidence of AF in sufferers with ICDs is roughly 21 p.c (imply annual chance),1 and AF is usually undetected – and subsequently untreated. Single-chamber ICDs account for a big proportion of ICDs implanted, which, as a result of absence of an atrial lead, can’t present direct atrial sensing.1 DX Expertise, nonetheless, accessible as a single-lead ICD system outfitted with a floating atrial dipole, affords dependable, well timed details about atrial arrhythmias and detects AF early.2-6 After detection, the DX ICD system helps monitor AF burden over time3 so clinicians can intervene when wanted, react to adjustments in affected person standing and optimize affected person therapy. Together with BIOTRONIK Dwelling Monitoring®, this AF administration resolution affords a complete evaluation of ICD sufferers and allows earlier, well-informed decision-making.3

Dr. David Hayes, Chief Medical Officer, BIOTRONIK, Inc.

“We’re deeply grateful for the belief we’ve obtained from the medical group. We develop options to ease physicians’ workloads and enhance affected person care by holistic and related approaches. Our improvements are rooted in reliable buyer relations, suggestions and our intensive experience in cardiac gadget implants and leads. With this spectacular milestone and the intensive scientific proof, DX Expertise has confirmed itself, and I’m assured that we’ll attain extra milestones equivalent to this within the years to come back.”

Over the previous a long time, greater than 20 scientific research that enrolled over 4,000 sufferers have confirmed the protection and efficacy of DX Expertise. This sturdy basis of scientific proof has just lately been enriched by the MATRIX study results, the biggest scientific analysis of DX Expertise so far. Outcomes from the MATRIX examine verify underneath real-world situations that DX, with Dwelling Monitoring, permits for dependable, guideline-recommended distant monitoring of subclinical AF.
