St. Jude Medical Announces First Implant in Clinical Trial for Accent MRI P
2012-04-23 16:25:00
St. Jude Medical is about to find out whether what it claims is an “MRI-safe” pacemaker lives up to its name—the company has implanted its Accent MRI pacemaker with Tendril MRI leads in a clinical trial. The goal of the investigational device exemption (IDE) study is to determine if patients with these devices can safely undergo a full-body, high resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan if necessary. MRI scans are the only reliable method of diagnosis for many diseases and conditions, which is why it is important for everyone to have access to them. Because they operate with high magnetic forces, they adversely can affect implanted devices. Approximately 1 million people are implanted with pacemakers worldwide, and approximately 300,000 of those patients could benefit from scans of the major organs and bones in the thoracic region of the body during the lifetime of their devices . Thus the Accent pacemaker—if successful in the trial and approved—could be ...
