Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Expert in Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators

Case Description:

A cardiac resynchronization therapy expert was requested for a case alleging infringement on a patent for implantable cardiac rhythm management devices. Cardiac resynchronization therapy is an innovative treatment for congestive heart failure in which an implantable cardioverter is used to coordinate contractions of the heart muscle and regulate the heartbeat. The patented technology claimed implantable medical devices controlled by a programmable microprocessor for sensing cardiac activity and electrically stimulating the heart muscle.

IMS ExpertServices sought cardiac resynchronization therapy experts with electrophysiology and surgical experience who worked with implantable cardioverter defibrillators or similar medical devices. The expert was needed to address design aspects of the devices, speaking from his experience using implantable cardioverters in cardiac resynchronization therapy. The client preferred an expert who had published on cardiac electrophysiology. An expert with ties to the Midwest was considered beneficial.
