FDA has approved Biotronik’s Acticor and Rivacor high-voltage CRM Device Families. According to the press release the six new tachycardia solutions include Rivacor VR-T, Rivacor DR-T, Rivacor HF-T QP, Acticor DX, Acticor CRT-DX Bipolar and Acticor CRT-DX.
The Acticor and Rivacor IPGs have a smooth, elliptical “BIOshape” and are the smallest and slimmest 3 Tesla (3T) MR-conditional CRM devices currently on the market. The devices also feature extended longevity—nearly 15 years for VR-T, 13.5 years for DR-T, 14 years for DX and nine years for CRT.
The Acticor family offers Biotronik’s “DX technology”, which provides atrial diagnostics without an atrial lead. DX systems can detect silent atrial fibrillation for stroke prevention, enhance diagnostic accuracy for better clinical decision-making and allow for dual-chamber supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) discrimination to prevent unnecessary shocks.
The Rivacor HF-T QP offer 20 LV pacing vectors and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) optimization with intelligent CRT AutoAdapt programming to automatically adjust to changes in patient conditions.
Acticor and Rivacor also feature MRI AutoDetect technology, which automatically recognizes when a patient enters an MRI environment and adjusts therapy for the duration of the scan.
