3 Methodology for pacemaker and ICD survival estimates 3.1 Cumulative Survival Probability This report has been prepared in accordance with ISO 5841-2:2000 (E) applying actuarial analysis for the calculation of survival probabilities. Survival estimates given in this report are considered to be generally representative for worldwide performance of BIOTRONIK devices. In general, during the initial phase of the service time, devices which are out of specification are the primary contribution to reduction of survival probability. As the product lifecycle lengthens, normal battery depletion...

This report is based on the observation of B ­ IOTRONIK’s U.S. products through review of our device registration and tracking systems and analyses of returned products from all sources. Because the ability to perform decedent searches of patients with BIOTRONIK devices via the U.S. Social Security Administration, the use of U.S. data more accurately represents the active patient population for reporting purposes. In addition, device tracking regulations and vigilance reporting regulations vary throughout the world; therefore use of the U.S. data is most appropriate for accurate and...

3.3 Returned product analysis Information on malfunctioning for the pacemaker and ICD portions of this report is taken exclusively from the analysis of returned products. The outcome of this analysis is the basis for the final classification of the device’s cause of explantation. Only analyzed products with confirmed device malfunctions are utilized in the calculation of malfunction-free survival probability. Every pacemaker and ICD returned to ­ IOTRONIK is B analyzed per internal procedures and classified as functioning normally, normal battery depletion, or malfunctioning (including...
