Indications, Safety & Warnings

Fortify Assura DR ICD

Rx Only

Brief Summary: Prior to using these devices, please review the User’s Manual for a complete listing of indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, potential adverse events and directions for us.

Indications: The devices are intended to provide ventricular antitachycardia pacing and ventricular defibrillation for automated treatment of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias. AF Suppression™ pacing is indicated for suppression of paroxysmal or persistent atrial fibrillation in patients with the above ICD indication and sinus node dysfunction.

Contraindications: Contraindications for pulse generator system use include ventricular tachyarrhythmias resulting from transient or correctable factors such as drug toxicity, electrolyte imbalance, or acute myocardial infarction.

Potential Adverse Events: Possible adverse events (in alphabetical order) associated with the system, include, but are not limited to the following: acceleration of arrhythmias (caused by device), air embolism, allergic reaction, bleeding, cardiac tamponade, chronic nerve damage, death, erosion, exacerbation of heart failure, excessive fibrotic tissue growth, extracardiac stimulation (phrenic nerve, diaphragm, chest wall), extrusion, fluid accumulation, formation of hematomas or cysts, inappropriate shocks, infection, keloid formation, lead abrasion and discontinuity, lead migration/dislodgment, myocardial damage, pneumothorax, shunting current or insulating myocardium during defibrillation with internal or external paddles, potential mortality due to inability to defibrillate or pace, thromboemboli, venous occlusion, venous or cardiac perforation. Patients susceptible to frequent shocks despite antiarrhythmic medical management may develop psychological intolerance to an ICD or CRTD system that may include the following: dependency, depression, fear of premature battery depletion, fear of shocking while conscious, fear of losing shock capability, imagined shocking (phantom shock).

Refer to the User’s Manual for detailed indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions and potential adverse events.
