Abbott Gallant ICD and CRT-D
Abbott received the CE Mark in February for its Gallant implantable cardioverter-defibrillator and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator devices.
The Gallant ICD and CRT-D devices feature Bluetooth connectivity and an accompanying smartphone app to enable patient engagement and remote monitoring. The devices also feature improved battery longevity and MRI compatibility.
ICDs are often recommended to prevent sudden cardiac death in patients who have reduced cardiac function and could be at risk of suffering abnormal heart rhythms. CRT-Ds are also used to prevent sudden death but can restore the normal timing of the ventricles or lower chambers of the heart.
