er the entire system when choosing which device to implant.  Boston Scientific has the smallest and thinnest high-energy devices on the market with excellent longevity and proven long-term lead reliability.  Our clinical evidence also shows our LATITUDE® remote monitoring system helps physicians manage their heart failure patients."

ELECTION trial data, recently published in Europace, demonstrated that Boston Scientific bipolar LV leads and devices, with Electronic Repositioning™ and three proprietary pacing configurations, successfully avoided PNS.  In particular, the study reported:  

  • Boston Scientific's bipolar CRT system successfully avoided PNS without lead repositioning more than 95 percent of the time during the acute implant procedure.  In addition, in the ELECTION trial, not a single patient required reoperation to reposition a lead due to chronic PNS.  St. Jude's published data indicated an ability to avoid PNS with its quadripolar lead between 89 percent and 95 percent of the time(1)(2).
  • Real-world performance data showed that current Boston Scientific bipolar LV leads have an acute dislodgement rate of less than 1 percent within 30 days post-implant (0.90 percent based on latest Product Performance Report).  St. Jude's quadripolar lead had a dislodgement rate of 3.7 percent in a published study(2).

  • Additional study data evaluating St. Jude's bipolar and quadripolar LV leads, include:

  • Available quadripolar data showed that physicians programmed the two distal electrodes as the cathode instead of the proximal electrodes, essentially programming it as a bipolar lead 96 percent of the time(3).
  • St. Jude's published data indicated no significant differences in implant time, fluoroscopy time or LV lead implant time between its quadripolar and bipolar LV lead cases(1).
