Inserting Implantable Cardiac Monitors (ICMs) in the Office: A Clinically Proven, Safe, and Efficient Option for Expanding Access to Patients

In this session, you’ll discover how safe, simple, and streamlined it is to perform the insertion of implantable cardiac monitors (ICMs) or otherwise known as implantable loop recorders (ILRs) out of the cath lab and in an office setting.  We’ll share an overview of the Medtronic LINQ Family of ICMs, highlight the clinical evidence that illustrates the safety and efficiency of in-office insertions, and give you a hands-on demonstration of a LINQ insertion workflow in-office.

Breakthrough Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve Treatment Option for Adult and Pediatric Congenital Heart Disease Patients

Learn more about Harmony™ Transcatheter Pulmonary Valve (TPV) from Medtronic: the first minimally invasive alternative for patients with severe pulmonary regurgitation who have a native or surgically-repaired right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) and are clinically indicated for surgical pulmonary valve replacement. Harmony TPV allows a broader range of congenital heart disease patients access to transcatheter technology, thus fulfilling a significant unmet clinical need. This novel therapy recently received FDA approval and is now available for use in the United States.
