Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Devices (CRT)

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Devices (CRT) are cardiac electrophysiology (EP) systems that include a small electronic device that is surgically implanted into a pocket of skin to help both ventricles contract together. They are also called biventricular pacemakers. These systems can be used for pacing only, or can include a built-in defibrillator.

The FDA cleared the world's first photon-counting computed tomography (CT) scanner, the Siemens Naeotom Alpha, in late September. This new technology will likely change the future direction of CT. Biosense Webster also announced the first cases using its Heliostar radiofrequency balloon ablation catheter were completed in September. Both were among the top stories in October.

Medtronic is recalling some of its implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT-D) devices because of an unexpected and rapid decrease in battery life. The company said this is due to a short circuit and will cause some devices to produce a “Recommended Replacement Time” (first warning that the battery is low) earlier than expected. Some devices may progress from “Recommended Replacement Time” to full battery depletion within as little as one day.
