    FDA aproval "Big Deal" for STJ

    St. Jude Medical Inc. has won the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (:FDA) approval for its Ellipse and SJM Assura portfolio of implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillators (CRT-Ds). The devices received CE Mark approval in May 2013.

    The advanced devices from the company’s Cardiac Rhythm Management business incorporate unique features that are capable of delivering high-voltage treatment to patients with heart failure. St. Jude is a pioneer in providing a low-friction coating on the ICD device instead of the lead, that helps lower the risk of lead-to-can abrasion.
