Sorin gets EU nod for "world's smallest" dual-chamber pacemaker:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Sorin has CE-marked for sale in Europe what it claims to be the world's smallest dual-chamber pacemaker. The Reply device measures just 8cc and integrates the company's proprietary SafeR pacing mode, which reduces the amount of pacing delivered to the right ventricle, thereby promoting natural cardiac function. Delivering unnecessary pacing to the right ventricle has been shown to significantly enhance the risk of patients developing heart failure and atrial fibrillation, said the Milan, Italy-based firm, which plans to launch the product in Europe in the next few months.
