What is Optimizer CCM Smart Therapy?

The Optimizer Smart is a minimally invasive implantable device that treats patients experiencing moderate to severe CHF symptoms even after appropriate medical treatment. The device operates by delivering precisely timed electric pulses called cardiac contractility modulation therapy.
As a result, patients receiving CCM therapy experience a higher quality of life by reducing CHF symptoms such as overwhelming shortness of breath and fatigue.

The Optimizer CCM Smart procedure

Optimizer is indicated to improve 6-minute hall walk distance, quality of life and functional status of NYHA Class III heart failure patients who remain symptomatic despite guideline directed medical therapy, are not indicated for CRT and have an LVEF ranging between 25% and 45%.
In eligible patients, the device is implanted in a small pocket under the skin of the upper chest, along with commercially available pacemaker leads that are placed in the heart’s right ventricular septum, while the patient is under light sedation. The device is generally implanted in the right pectoral region into a subcutaneous pocket at a depth of 2.5 centimeters and the pocket is then closed. After implantation, the physician custom-programs and activates the device for the patient. The patient charges the device one hour per week using the external charger. Optimizer Smart systems are expected to last for at least 15 years before requiring replacement.
