Steerable Left Ventricular Lead for CRT Devices


July 12, 2007

The Acuity steerable left ventricular lead device is designed for cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators and cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemakers, both of which treat heart failure.

The product features a deflectable tip for precise placement of the lead even in difficult-to-access branch vessels on the left side of the heart, according to the company.

The FDA cleared the product just a day after Boston Scientific announced FDA officials had lifted all restrictions at the company's Guidant plant in Minnesota.
