Boston Scientific Adds New Feature to Its CRF Therapy

Boston Scientific has launched new software enabling its Left Ventricular (LV) Offset feature in the CONTAK RENEWAL, RENEWAL 3, and RENEWAL 3 RF cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators (CRT-D). LV Offset allows physicians to further fine-tune synchronization of the heart by allowing adjustment of the delay between right and left ventricular pacing, which helps physicians provide more tailored care for heart failure patients.

The software will operate on the ZOOM LATITUDE programmer and allows patients who have already been implanted with a CONTAK RENEWAL, RENEWAL 3 or RENEWAL 3 RF CRT-D to have the LV Offset feature activated. The LV Offset feature can be enabled by the ZOOM LATITUDE programmer during a patient's routine in-clinic visit. Boston Scientific CRM will begin providing the FDA- approved software to physicians in the coming weeks.
