Biotronik introduces new ProMRI ICD and CRT-D series

3rd December 2014

Biotronik has announced the launch of its new Iperia/Itrevia/Inventra series of single and dual-chamber implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and cardiac resynchronisation therapy defibrillators (CRT-Ds).

Equipped with ProMRI technology, the devices have been designed to be fully functional even when patients undergo magnetic resonance imaging scans. Biotronik is the first and only company to offer heart failure patients CRT-Ds and leads that are MRI compatible.

Patients with single-chamber ICDs can take advantage of 3 tesla MRI scans with an exclusion zone, while both single- and dual-chamber ICD patients can be eligible for 1.5 T full-body scans by using these devices.

Wolf Ruhnke, vice-president at Biotronik, said: "The new ICD and CRT-D series is the result of 50 years of innovation and an unwavering sense of responsibility when it comes to helping patients live normal lives."

To make it easier to track the MR conditions of implantable devices, the company has also recently launched the ProMRI SystemCheck, further enhancing the clinical utility of the new CE Mark-approved devices.

Offering a simple online interface, the system allows users to select their country from an auto-complete menu and input the device name, and then brings up information about whether they are MR conditional with a single click.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801764122-ADNFCR
