Cardiac Rhythm and Heart Failure Management

Arctic Front Advance™ Cardiac CryoAblation system

Information about the minimally invasive procedure to treat medication-resistant paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) using the Arctic Front Advance™ Cardiac CryoAblation system.

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)

Information about devices used for Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy.

Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs)

Information about devices surgically implanted in the chest to continuously monitor hearts that tend to beat dangerously fast and deliver corrective electrical impulses when required. An ICD is often known as "an emergency room in your chest."

Medtronic CareLink® Network

The Medtronic CareLink Network is the industry's leading and longest-running remote monitoring system. CareLink provides health care providers and patients the convenience of telemedicine by remotely monitoring patients implanted with Medtronic cardiac devices and providing comprehensive data received from the implanted cardiac devices to their physicians.

Pacemakers

Information about devices implanted in the chest to treat hearts that tend to beat too slowly to support the needs of the human circulatory system.

Reveal LINQ™ Insertable Cardiac Monitor for Irregular Heartbeats

Information about the Reveal LINQ ICM – a miniaturized implantable cardiac monitor designed to help physicians quickly and accurately diagnose irregular heartbeats.

Reveal Monitor for Unexplained Fainting

Information about the Reveal DX & XT implantable cardiac monitors that give physicians valuable insights into heart rhythms, monitoring the heart for up to three years and helping identify the cause of unexplained fainting.

SEEQ™ Mobile Cardiac Telemetry (MCT) System for Irregular Heartbeats

The SEEQ™ MCT System is an external heart monitor that can be prescribed for up to 30 days to help detect and diagnose the cause of irregular heartbeats in patients.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a sudden, abrupt loss of heart function. Most SCA episodes are caused by the rapid and/or chaotic activity of the heart known as ventricular tachycardia (VT) or ventricular fibrillation (VF). These are abnormalities of the heart’s electrical conduction system. SCA claims the lives of nearly 1,000 Americans each day – many of these deaths are preventable.

Coronary and Structural Heart Disease Management

Beating Heart Bypass Surgery

Information about a new approach to traditional bypass surgery.

Coronary Artery Disease

Information about coronary artery disease (CAD) and its minimally invasive treatment with the Resolute Integrity Drug-Eluting Stent.

Heart Valve Disease

Information about heart valve disease and heart valve replacement.

Medtronic CoreValve System

The Medtronic CoreValve® Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) System is approved by the FDA to treat patients with severe aortic stenosis who are considered at high or extreme risk for open-heart surgery.

Melody® Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve

Information about the Melody® Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve, which offers a non-surgical valve replacement option for congenital heart disease patients. Melody is the first transcatheter heart valve to receive FDA approval and represents a significant development in the treatment of congenital heart disease.

Diabetes

Diabetes Management

Information about Medtronic insulin pump therapy, continuous glucose monitoring and therapy management software.

Neuromodulation

AdaptiveStim with Restore Sensor

Information about the AdaptiveStim™ with RestoreSensor™ neurostimulation system, the first and only chronic pain treatment that harnesses motion sensor technology found in smart phones and computer gaming systems to provide effective pain relief and convenience by automatically adapting stimulation levels to the needs of people with chronic back and/or leg pain.

Renal Denervation

Renal denervation

Information about renal denervation, an investigational treatment for uncontrolled hypertension in the United States. Renal denervation is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Its use in the United States is limited by U.S. law to clinical studies approved by the FDA.

Spine

INFUSE® Bone Graft - Trauma

Information about INFUSE® Bone Graft for use in the treatment of acute, open tibia fractures in adults.

INFUSE® Bone Graft/LT-CAGE® Device

Information about the use of INFUSE® Bone Graft with the LT-CAGE® Lumbar Tapered Fusion Device to treat degenerative disc disease; it's estimated that, in 2002, more than 190,000 Americans will undergo lumbar spinal fusion surgeries to ease their debilitating back pain and get them back on their feet. INFUSE® Bone Graft contains recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein (rhBMP-2), the genetically engineered version of a naturally occurring protein that is capable of initiating bone growth, or bone regeneration, in specific, targeted areas in the spine. Using INFUSE® Bone Graft with the LT-CAGE® device in spine surgery reduces the pain and complications associated with treating degenerative disc disease by eliminating the second surgery required to harvest bone from a patient’s hip, as is done in traditional spinal fusion procedures.
