July 9, 2008

The Sorin Group said the FDA approved to market the CRT model of its OVATIO family, reportedly the smallest CRT defibrillator (CRT-D) available. The OVATIO CRT 6750 is shaped to offer ease of implantation and long-term patient comfort, and is designed to allow more flexibility in the management of cardiac resynchronization and antitachyarrhythmia therapy due to its Brady-Tachy Overlap (BTO).
