Boston Scientific has received CE Mark approval for the new EMBLEM MRI Subcutaneous Implantable Defibrillator (S-ICD) System, as well as magnetic resonance (MR) conditional labeling for all previously implanted EMBLEM S-ICD Systems.
The EMBLEM MRI S-ICD System also includes two new features, SMART Pass technology and Atrial Fibrillation (AF) Monitor™. The SMART Pass technology will help ensure patients receive therapy from the device only when necessary by enhancing the INSIGHT™ Algorithm, which identifies and classifies a heart rhythm for effective arrhythmia treatment. This novel feature will also be added to previously implanted EMBLEM S-ICD Systems through a software update. The AF Monitor feature of the EMBLEM MRI S-ICD System is a new detection tool designed to alert physicians after the identification of AF so they can make more informed treatment decisions for their patients.
In the U.S., the EMBLEM MRI S-ICD System is not available for sale.
