An Illustration of Impact of Current Patient Management Recommendations for a Hypothetical Clinic of 1,000 Sprint Fidelis Lead Patients over the Next 12 Months

The median patient age is 67 (age at time of lead implant) and the median implant time is 20.5 months.
This represents an estimate of the average rate of fracture over the next 12 months based on currently available data.
Medtronic recognizes that not all patients will hear the alert when it is triggered. The new software described in this performance update is intended to enhance the patient alert and increase the likelihood that fractures will be detected prior to inappropriate therapy.
