Dublin-based Medtronic revealed encouraging results from a study completed on its Micra Transcatheter Pacing System (TPS), which showed a 99.6 percent implant success rate and low chances of major complications occurring.

Abbott announced its smartphone-compatible insertable cardiac monitor (ICM) has gained CE Mark. The device allows physicians to remotely monitor patients, potentially diagnosing arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation (AFib).

Just last week, Lake Oswego, Oregon-based Biotronik announced that two of its new products, the SentusProMRI and its MultiPole Pacing technology, were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This week at the annual Heart Rhythm Society conference in Chicago, the company showed off the new devices.

Abiomed has debuted the third generation of its Impella CP heart pump, a device designed to unload the heart and let it naturally recover. 

The vision was clear. The experienced heart and vascular team at the Northwestern Medicine Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute in Chicago needed a cardiovascular information system (CVIS) to stretch across its seven hospitals and 100 ambulatory care centers, physician offices and clinics. Like an architect constructing a solid foundation, they brought in a unified IT infrastructure to support enterprise-wide image reading, viewing, smart structured reporting and drive better quality, outcomes and efficiency. For this leading-edge health network, syngo Dynamics (Siemens) emerged as the enterprise-wide solution of choice for exchanging key patient images and data with the EMR, enabling near-instant, secure, HIPAA-enabled access to clinicians onsite and remote and ensuring interoperability across the enterprise.
