St Jude Medical wins innovation award for Nanostim pacemaker

19th June 2014

St Jude Medical has been presented with the 2014 Innovation Award at the annual Cardiostim conference for its Nanostim leadless pacemaker.

During the 19th World Congress in Cardiac Electrophysiology and Cardiac Techniques, the company's groundbreaking device was highlighted as the industry's most innovative product in the sector of electrophysiology and cardiac techniques.

It was selected for the accolade by a congress committee of electrophysiologists, demonstrating the high esteem in which the electrophysiology community holds the product.

Nanostim received European CE Mark approval in 2013 and is designed to be placed without the visible surgical pocket, scar and insulated wires required for conventional pacemakers. It is also  less than ten percent the size of traditional devices, making it the least invasive pacing technology on the market.

Dr Eric Fain, group president of St Jude Medical, said: "With more than 55 years of history in pacing innovation, we are proud that this revolutionary technology is transforming the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias and setting a new standard of care for future pacing technologies."

The device was created via a partnership between St Jude Medical and the company Nanostim, with the success of the project leading the former to acquire the latter last year.ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801729532-ADNFCR
