Date:4/5/2011

at require an implanted defibrillator, this new technology is an important breakthrough," said Randy A. Lieberman, M.D., the Director of Electrophysiology at CVI.  "Our goal at CVI is to keep improving the quality of life for those who need implanted defibrillators, and this pioneering device is a major step on the road to accomplishing that.

"This is a proven technology, FDA-approved, that's been shown to be very effective at eliminating unnecessary shocks.  It's also brand-new – and we were very pleased to learn that we were the first heart-care facility in the entire Midwest to make it available to patents.

"At CVI, we're determined to provide cardiac patients with the very latest heart-care technology.  We want to prolong life with these exciting new tools, that's true – but we also want to improve the quality of life at the same time.  The new Protecta implantable defibrillator is an important step in accomplishing both of those goals."

Dr. Lieberman, who conducted the successful Protecta implantation at DMC Harper University Hospital's Cardiovascular Institute last week, also noted that CVI was recently the first heart-care facility in Michigan to accomplish a transcatheter aortic valve implant, back in February.  That ground-breaking procedure was led by CVI President Theodore L. Schreiber, M.D. and Dr. Ali Kafi, chief of clinical cardio-thoracic surgery at DMC Harper University Hospital.  They were accompanied by a multidisciplinary team of DMC physicians, nurses, research team and technologists.

Describing the recent breakthrough implantation of the Protecta defibrillator, Dr. Schreiber said, "This is certainly a significant treatment advance for patients who need an implanted defibrillator, and it's a very encouraging step forward in helping improve their quality of life."
