Ilesto DX

Company Ref: 

 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Biotronik’s Ilesto family of implantable cardioverter-defibrillator/cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators (ICD/CRT-D devices).

The new electromechanical platform allows for a 15 percent size reduction and 29 percent fewer components with no compromise in longevity or clinical features. 

It is the first defibrillator system equipped to provide full atrial diagnostic information with just one specialized defibrillator lead. These capabilities have already been cited in multiple case studies, and physicians are now considering the DX System as a solution to the limited capabilities of single chamber or the additional complications associated with dual chamber devices.
