Tools that allow physicians to provide the full value of CRT to patients by enabling patient specific optimization using MulitPoint™ Pacing and SyncAV™.

MultiPoint™ Pacing is safe: 93.6% freedom from system-related complications1 demonstrated by a prospective, multi-center, randomized, double-blinded clinical trial (IDE study: 506 patients in 49 centers)
MultiPoint™ Pacing is feasible: The IRON-MPP registry of 507 patients in 76 centers throughout Italy demonstrated that pacing the ability to provide MPP from 2 electrode locations with a good threshold and no PNS is feasible in the majority of patients2
MultiPoint™ Pacing increases response rates: a single center randomized study of 44 patients demonstrated a 44% relative reduction in non-responders and a 19% higher absolute response as measured by reduction in ESV at 12 months3

MultiPoint™ Pacing increases the magnitude of response: The same study demonstrated an improvement of the response with 34% «super-responders» (>30% ESV reduction)

MultiPoint™ Pacing is easy to program using VectSelect: wide spacing (> 30 mm) and nearly simultaneous activation (LV1-LV2: 5 ms) provide the best result as demonstrated by a subgroup analysis of the IDE study1

For patients with intrinsic atrio-ventricular (AV) conduction, dynamic CRT offered by SyncAV™ enhances the CRT effect by maintaining BiV pacing through automated adjustment of AV intervals during normal sinus rhythm to account for the individual patient’s AV conduction patterns 4. As a combination, MPP and SyncAV offer the unique opportunity for individualized CRT with reduction in the QRS duration and improved response to CRT.
