st jude medical inc (JUD) Details

St. Jude Medical, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, develops, manufactures and distributes cardiovascular medical devices for cardiac rhythm management, cardiovascular, and atrial fibrillation therapy areas worldwide. It operates in two divisions, Implantable Electronic Systems, and Cardiovascular and Ablation Technologies. The company offers tachycardia implantable cardioverter defibrillator systems and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator devices to treat patients suffering from lethal heart conditions, such as sudden cardiac arrest or heart failure. It also provides pacemakers, which deliver low-voltage electrical impulses to stimulate a heartbeat for patients whose hearts beat too slowly; and atrial fibrillation products comprising electrophysiology, introducers and catheters, advanced cardiac mapping, navigation and recording systems, and ablation systems. In addition, the company offers vascular closure devices, compression assist devices, pressure measurement guidewires, diagnostic coronary imaging technology, percutaneous catheter introducers, diagnostic guidewires, renal denervation technology and vascular plugs, optical coherence tomography imaging products, and other vascular accessories, as well as CardioMEMS, a heart failure monitoring device. Further, it provides structural heart products, including transcatheter aortic heart valves, various surgical heart valve repair and replacement products, and transcatheter structural heart defect devices; and neuromodulation products, such as spinal cord stimulation and radiofrequency ablation to treat chronic pain, as well as deep brain stimulation to treat movement disorders. The company sells its products through direct sales force and independent distributors. St. Jude Medical, Inc. was founded in 1976 and is headquartered in St. Paul, Minnesota.

St. Jude Medical Inc. Announces Encouraging Results from Coronary Artery Disease Studies

St. Jude Medical Inc. has announced results from two clinical studies which support the use of the company's fractional flow reserve, or FFR, technology to optimize percutaneous coronary intervention, or PCI, procedures used to restore blood flow to the heart in patients with coronary artery disease. The studies -15-year follow-up to the DEFER study and primary results from the CONTRAST study were presented. Combined, the studies contribute to the growing body of evidence supporting FFR as a valuable and important decision-making tool for physicians. St. Jude Medical's PressureWire FFR technology supports better treatment decisions for patients by providing a more detailed, physiologic analysis of blood flow blockages in the heart. Specifically, FFR can help accurately identify which coronary lesions or blockages are responsible for obstructing the flow of blood to a patient's heart muscle. This insight allows physicians to determine which lesions warrant stenting, resulting in improved patient outcomes and reduced health care costs. In a 15-year follow up study, new data from the DEFER study confirms original and five-year findings. Researchers leading the DEFER study found the positive benefits of decisions based on St. Jude Medical PressureWire FFR guidance were sustained after 15 years. The study also found the risk for a myocardial infarction was 6.5 times lower in patients where treatment was guided by FFR compared to patients in the non-FFR guided group, while finding no negative effect of leaving non-significant lesions untreated. The DEFER study's 15 year data is an important advancement of FFR, because it confirms sustained benefits of FFR guidance over time. After 15 years, DEFER researchers found stenting a non-ischemic stenosis, or narrowing of the blood vessel restricting blood flow to the heart, had no benefit compared to patients treated by standard medical therapy. In addition to a reduction in heart attacks, patients where revascularization was deferred had very low rates of complications compared to patients in which lesions were treated without proof of ischemia. In the CONTRAST study, researchers assessed FFR differently, and compared the gold standard in vascular physiologic assessment, FFR using adenosine, to resting indices (Pd/Pa and iFR) and a new approach to adenosine-free FFR; FFR using contrast medium. Contrast FFR (cFFR), also known as contrast Pd/Pa, is a new diagnostic approach where the hyperemic effect (an increase in blood flow) is induced by contrast medium in place of adenosine. The study found that cFFR provides superior accuracy compared to resting indices such as iFR or resting Pd/Pa. To date, simplifying physiologic assessment using resting indices has resulted in a reduction in accuracy, which has limited adoption. The CONTRAST study found both Pd/Pa and iFR to offer similar rates of accuracy. In addition, the study's researchers concluded cFFR did not add extra cost or procedure time and may be a viable option for situations where the use of adenosine is undesired or contra indicated.

St. Jude Medical Inc. Receives CE Mark Approval and the European Launch of the St. Jude MedicalInvisible Trial System

St. Jude Medical Inc. announced CE Mark approval and the European launch of the St. Jude MedicalInvisible Trial System, an app-based and wireless neuromodulation programming system leveraging Apple™ iPod touch™ and iPad mini™ technology. Like other Apple products, the new St. Jude Medical system relies on Bluetooth communication, providing a secure, safe, and wireless experience when patients trial spinal cord stimulation for the treatment of chronic pain prior to permanent implantation. One of the key system features of the Invisible Trial System is the use of an external pulse generator (EPG) as the system’s power source. The EPG is small, and uses Bluetooth communication to communicate between the patient’s iPod touch controller and the stimulation system. As a result, the system can now be worn under a patient’s clothing, often rendering the entire system “invisible” and providing a more comfortable trial experience. The goal is for patients to focus more on potential pain relief and therapeutic impact during their trial and less on the trial system itself. The iPod touch controller offers patients a simple, familiar platform to adjust their therapy. An iPad mini tablet is used by the patient’s physician to set the programming parameters. The programmer also displays trial usage data from the EPG and allows the physician to print or email the data in PDF format. Bluetooth technology safely and securely communicates wirelessly between the EPG and patient and physician devices, eliminating the programming trial cable and thus increasing the patient’s comfort. The new trial system has the capability to deliver both traditional and Burst stimulation modes. Burst stimulation has been demonstrated to minimize paresthesia in most patients. Paresthesia is a sensation which can often fluctuate with posture and body position changes and negatively impact the trial experience. Being able to utilize the Burst stimulation mode in a trial setting expands the range of available stimulation modes for chronic pain sufferers in the trial phase and in addition offers the potential to trial Burst stimulation for patients who did not respond to traditional tonic stimulation previously.
