Device Longevity in Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators Differs Between Manufacturers: Data from the Danish ICD Registry. Presented at HRS 2014. http://ondemand.hrsonline.org/common/presentation-detail.aspx/15/35/1241/9000. Boston Scientific = 136 patients, Medtronic = 651 patients, St. Jude Medical = 1,587 patients, Bitronik = 369 patients. Time to exchange of the device because of battery depletion or device failure recorded in the Danish ICD Registry was the endpoint. The four-year survival rate for devices in the Danish Registry study was 81.1% for Medtronic and 95.7% for Boston Scientific (P<0.01).
