16:09 EDTBSXBoston Scientific announces long-term data underscore safety, efficacy of S-ICD
The Journal of the American College of Cardiology published data confirming the long-term safety and efficacy of the Boston Scientific S-ICD System for patients at risk of sudden cardiac arrest. The study, "Safety and Efficacy of the Totally Subcutaneous Implantable Defibrillator: 2-year Results from a Pooled Analysis of the IDE Study and EFFORTLESS Registry" was led by Dr. Martin Burke, professor of medicine at the University of Chicago. The analysis combined data from two large S-ICD studies to provide the most comprehensive look at S-ICD System patient outcomes to date. The all-cause mortality rate for the S-ICD patients was 1.6% per year, comparing favorably to observed mortality rates in similar TV-ICD studies. Currently, the S-ICD System is covered nationally by Medicare, Aetna, Cigna and others, and regionally by numerous private and Medicaid plans, providing coverage for approximately 170M individuals in the U.S. The S-ICD System has been commercially available in Europe since 2009.
