Sorin claims its new CRT-P is the world’s smallest

Sorin Group (BIT:SRN) said today it launched its Reply CRT-P cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemaker, claiming it to be the world’s smallest of its kind. The Reply CRT-P is 11.3 cc in volume, 3.7 cc smaller than Boston Scientific‘s (NYSE:BSX) Intua and 0.2 cc smaller than St. Jude Medical‘s (NYSE:STJ) Anthem CRT-P, according to their respective sites. The device also features the ability to adapt to heart rate due to exercise and avoid inappropriate reactions, Sorin said. The 1st device was implanted at the Papworth Hospital in Cambridge, UK by Dr. Brian Gordon, Sorin said. “The small size of the device is very impressive. Size is an extremely important consideration for many patients alongside battery longevity and Reply CRT-P is setting the standard for the former without compromising the latter,” Gordon said. The pacer also features a sleep apnea monitoring algorithm to detect severe sleep apnea through a ventilation sensor, Sorin said. “Sorin Group is dedicated to developing solutions for heart failure that enable optimal management of comorbidities such as sleep apnea. Reply CRT-P is another example of this, providing state-of-the-art cardiac resynchronization therapy for HF patients while at the same time enabling the intuitive screening and monitoring of sleep apnea,” cardiac rhythm mangement unit president Stefano Di Lullo said in a press release. Sorin said yesterday that its 2nd-quarter profits plunged nea...

AbstractHeart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) is common in patients with adult congenital heart disease. Many of the most common congenital defects have a high prevalence of HFrEF, including left-sided obstructive lesions (aortic stenosis, coarctation of the aorta, Shone complex), tetralogy of Fallot, Ebstein anomaly, lesions in which there is a systemic right ventricle, and lesions palliated with a Fontan circulation. However, heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is also prevalent in all these lesions. Comprehensive evaluation includes physical exam, biomarkers, echocardiography and advanc...

Abstract Sleep-related breathing disorders are commonly encountered in the middle-aged population, negatively affecting quality of life. Central sleep apnea is associated with congestive heart failure, whereas obstructive sleep apnea is related to different pathophysiologic mechanisms, such as the total or partial occlusion of upper airway tract. Both sleep-related disorders have been associated with increased morbidity, and hence, they have been a target of several treatment strategies. The aim of this systematic review is to evaluate the effect of different types of cardiac pacing on sleep-related breathing diso...

A 73-year-old man presented to the cardiology clinic in early fall for evaluation of shortness of breath that had worsened over the previous year. He had numerous comorbidities, including hypertension, hyperlipidemia, type 2 diabetes mellitus, medically complicated obesity, stage 3 chronic kidney disease, obstructive sleep apnea, and a 10-year history of nonischemic cardiomyopathy after biventricular pacemaker placement for cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). He was receiving maximal medical therapy for his heart failure.
