Sorin Offers One of the Smallest Implantable Dual Chamber Pacemakers

The Sorin Group offers the REPLY family of dual and single chamber pacemakers, with the world’s smallest dual chamber pacemaker at 8cc’s.

The company said the device is designed to reduce ventricular pacing and promote natural cardiac function. REPLY integrates Sorin Group’s new proprietary Safe pacing mode. The technology builds on the Sorin Group’s AAISafe pacing mode first introduced in Europe in September 2003 and in the U.S. in May 2005. AAISafe switches from AAI to DDD in case of AV block detection, and has been shown to reduce unnecessary pacing in both sinus node disease and unselected AV block patients. The company said delivering unnecessary pacing to the right ventricle has been shown to significantly enhance the risk of patients developing heart failure and atrial fibrillation.

In addition to Safe, the REPLY pacemaker delivers automatic features such as SmartCheck, which lets the user automate follow up tests and provides comprehensive data reporting and recommendations.

Dr. Randy Lieberman, director of electrophysiology at Harper University Hospital and assistant professor of medicine at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, implanted the first Reply pacemaker in the U.S.

The REPLY pacemaker will be distributed in the U.S. by ELA Medical Inc., a Sorin Group Company.
