“This year, we’re eager to present new data further supporting the use of the S-ICD System as a first-line therapy for patients at risk for sudden cardiac death as well as data underscoring the clinical potential of our future technologies including the POLARx cryoballon ablation catheter and the Lux Dx insertable cardiac monitor,” said Dr. Kenneth Stein, senior vice president and chief medical officer, Rhythm Management and Global Health Policy, Boston Scientific. “We are also excited about the presentation of results from MADIT-CHIC, our grant-funded research on the use of cardiac resynchronization therapy in patients with chemotherapy-induced cardiomyopathy, as it is one of the first prospective trials to focus on this growing population.”
