Intellis Platform with DTM Spinal Cord Stimulation Receives FDA Revised Commercial Labelling

IN.PACT AV Drug-Coated Balloon Is First and Only to Show Superior and Sustained Results Through Two Years Compared to PTA in Treating Arteriovenous Fistulae Lesions

The data, which were presented virtually as a podium first at the 2021 Charing Cross Symposium, demonstrated that the IN.PACT™ AV drug-coated balloon (DCB) is the first and only DCB to show sustained and superior effectiveness through two years compared to standard percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients with de novo or non-stented restenotic native arteriovenous fistulae (AVF) in the upper extremity.

Martell Diagnostic Laboratories Announces HERTEST: Groundbreaking Way to Detect Effectiveness of Breast Cancer RX Globally

HERTEST is a blood test that looks for a protein called human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER2), which is shed into the blood stream of patients with growing breast cancer tumors.

ESPRIT CAM Improves Productivity for Long Part Machining by Automating Multi-spindle Program Creation

ESPRIT CAM: New computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM) technology has been introduced by ESPRIT CAM, part of Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division that provides manufacturers with the control and flexibility needed to use multi-spindle and multi-channel computer-numerical-control (CNC) machinery for the machining of long parts.

Intellis Platform with Differential Target Multiplexed (DTM™) programming is used for the treatment of chronic, intractable back and leg pain.

Medtronic notes the new labeling will include study outcomes from a multicenter randomized control trial reflecting superior back pain relief with DTM SCS when compared to conventional SCS.

The trial demonstrated with clinical and statistical significance that DTM SCS programming is superior to conventional SCS programming when used to treat intractable chronic back pain. At 3 months, 80% of patients treated with DTM SCS reported back pain relief of at least 50%, compared with 51% of patients treated with conventional SCS as measured by the Visual Analog Scale (VAS), a widely used and accepted measure for pain intensity.1

This labeling update closely follows the most recent presentation of 12-month clinical trial outcomes during a late-breaking clinical trial session at NANS 2021.2 Trial results showed statistically significant and superior back pain relief with DTM SCS compared to conventional SCS at 12 months: 84% of patients with chronic back pain treated with DTM SCS reported at least 50% pain relief, compared to 51% of patients treated with conventional SCS. There was also a difference in the proportion of patients who reported profound back pain relief (>80% reduction in VAS score) favoring DTM SCS (69%) compared with conventional SCS (35.1%).2

“The body of clinical evidence proving the efficacy of DTM SCS in treating patients with chronic back pain continues to grow,” said Charlie Covert, vice president and general manager, Pain Therapies within the Neuromodulation business, which is part of the Neuroscience Portfolio at Medtronic. “The updated labeling further strengthens the credibility of the outcomes from this therapy, and parallels the profound benefits our clinician partners are seeing with their own patients.”

DTM therapy, which is clinically proven and only available on the Medtronic Intellis platform, is a unique and proprietary programming option available to treat patients with chronic pain that is based on years of preclinical research.3,4,5
