Les defibrillateurs de Boston Scientific obtiennent le marquage CE pour leur longevite etendue

PARIS, November 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

La longévité attendue pour ces dispositifs est deux fois plus étendue que celle de produits similaires

Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE : BSX) vient d'obtenir une modification de marquage CE en reconnaissance de l'extension de longévité de ses défibrillateurs automatiques implantables (DAI) et défibrillateurs avec fonction de resynchronisation cardiaque (CRT-D) INCEPTA™, ENERGEN™, PUNCTUA™, COGNIS® et TELIGEN®. Les prévisions de longévité reposent sur des données soumises aux autorités européennes et varient pour chaque dispositif en fonction du modèle et des configurations.

La longévité attendue pour ces dispositifs est de plus de 10 ans pour certains modèles de DAI de Boston Scientific et avoisine huit ans pour les CRT-D, soit une longévité pouvant aller jusqu'au double de celle de dispositifs similaires concurrents.[1] La société propose ces dispositifs avec des garanties pouvant aller jusqu'à 10 ans selon les modèles*, c'est-à-dire des durées de garantie jusqu'à deux fois plus longues que celles d'autres dispositifs similaires actuellement disponibles sur le marché.   

« Nous sommes très heureux de cette mise à jour de nos mentions légales, qui permet d'offrir aux médecins et aux patients une assurance supplémentaire sur la longévité de nos dispositifs » a déclaré Michael Onuscheck, Vice-Président de Boston Scientific et Président de Boston Scientific Europe, Moyen-Orient et Afrique. «  Les DAI et les CRT-D de Boston Scientific bénéficient de notre technologie innovante et exclusive en termes de batterie. Cette nouvelle pile a été tout d'abord introduite pour les dispositifs COGNIS et TELIGEN, en 2008, et elle est désormais intégrée à tous nos nouveaux dispositifs. Cette certification européenne confirme la confiance déjà exprimée par la Food and Drug Administration des États-Unis en début d'année. »

« La longévité des dispositifs est essentielle pour les patients implantés par ces dispositifs. Les patients vivant plus longtemps, l'amélioration de la longévité peut se traduire très concrètement par une diminution du nombre de procédures de remplacement et du risque de complications »  a ajouté Vias Markides, cardiologue consultant et président du département d'arythmie du Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust, à Londres, Royaume Uni. « La diminution du nombre de procédures de remplacement exerce également un impact important en termes économiques pour les systèmes de santé, en permettant de faire des économies substantielles et en offrant des avantages opérationnels aux services d'implantation de dispositifs. Les DAI et les CRT-D de Boston Scientific ont montré une amélioration significative des estimations de leur longévité, étayée par une garantie offerte par la société avec une durée impressionnante. »

*Garanties : DAI INCEPTA et ENERGEN VR :10 ans ; DAI INCEPTA et ENERGEN DR : huit ans ; DAI PUNCTUA et TELIGEN : sept ans ; CRT-D INCEPTA et ENERGEN : six ans ; CRT-D PUNCTUA & COGNIS : cinq ans.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
