Statement of Kenneth Stein, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Cardiac Rhythm Management, Boston Scientific on JAMA Article
Date:1/4/2011

ming clinical trial evidence, expert opinion, national guidelines, and a vast array of educational conferences, evidence-based, life-prolonging drug and device therapies continue to be under-utilized, with significant disparities in SCA care and use of ICDs in vulnerable populations, including blacks, women and the elderly."

"It is interesting to note that three of four cases cited in the JAMA article were outside the guidelines solely on the basis of timing, and that many of these patients would have qualified within a matter of weeks or months.

"ICD and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) therapies have been shown to be cost effective in the MADIT II, COMPANION and SCD-HeFT clinical trial patient populations.  In addition, long-term data from the MADIT II study showed that the life-saving benefits of ICD therapy were sustained at eight years (34 percent relative reduction in the risk of death).  In that trial, one life was saved for every eight patients who received an ICD.

"While ICDs are at times used outside the guidelines, the more fundamental problem is that on the whole, this life-saving therapy is under-utilized, rather than over-utilized."
