Medtronic SureTune3 Earns CE Mark for deep brain stimulation therapy

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
DUBLIN and BERLIN, 28 June 2017 – Medtronic plc (NYSE: MDT) today announced it has received CE (Conformité Européenne) Mark for SureTune(TM)3 software for deep brain stimulation (DBS). SureTune3 provides patient-specific visualization of lead location and simulated volume of neural activation to help physicians make decisions on how to program - or tune - their patient's DBS therapy.

Medtronic DBS therapy has CE Mark approval for diseases such as Parkinson's disease and treats symptoms such as tremor via a surgically implanted medical device, similar to a cardiac pacemaker, that delivers mild electrical pulses to precisely targeted areas of the brain. Electrical stimulation of these areas normalizes the brain circuits that control symptoms. More than 10 million people worldwide are living with Parkinson's disease.

SureTune3's advancements streamline the physician's workflow and allow StealthStation(TM) surgical planning information to be imported. SureTune3 also contains a 3D deformable atlas to allow physicians to more precisely define anatomical structures, or the exact region in the brain that must be stimulated to alleviate symptoms. The SureTune3 system is fully downloadable with the option to work over a hospital's server so clinical multidisciplinary teams can work flexibly. SureTune3 is currently not approved in the United States.

Data on SureTune3 were presented today by Professor Jens Volkmann, MD, PhD, FEAN, chairman and professor of neurology in the University Clinic of Würzburg at the World Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery Meeting currently ongoing in Berlin, Germany. At the congress, he explained how SureTune3 is helping his team with patient management. "With SureTune3, I can integrate all patient data - both planning and procedure - which allows for more personalized management of each case," said Prof. Volkmann. "The improved software allows me to accurately visualize each DBS patient's stimulation settings." Using this approach, clinical programming experience, patient-specific visualization of simulated volume of neural activation and stereotactic planning will form an integrated workflow. Prof. Volkmann also presented research using SureTune3 which may provide further insight into how individual neural activation maps may be used.

Medtronic DBS therapy has CE Mark approval for Parkinson's Disease, Dystonia, Essential Tremor, OCD and Epilepsy and is the only DBS complete portfolio that, under specific conditions, is full body MR conditional and can be left on during an MRI scan.
