Cameron Health and the Revolution From Below

Executive Summary

The ICD market in cardiac rhythm management has been one of the medical device industry's fastest growing markets over the past several years. Yet for all its success, only about 20% of the patients who could benefit from an ICD get one. Why is that? Officials from Cameron Health argue that the complexity of current devices frustrate many cardiologists and force them to hand patients over to electrophysiologists, a move that they often resist. Now, Cameron hopes to blow open the untapped portion of the market with a device that is simpler to use, one that cardiologists will feel comfortable implanting.

Cameron Health: Is This The Cure For An Ailing ICD Market?

Ten years ago, the ICD market was booming, now it's not, despite studies that show the device is underutilized. The increasing complexity of CRM devices, and in particular ICDs, has brought a host of problems - including major product recalls that in turn have created caution on the part of patients - and has done little to grow the market beyond single digits in recent years. Cameron Health believes it has the answer for a truly disruptive ICD with a contrarian twist: a simpler device that addresses major problems such as lead failures, inappropriate shocks, and the burdens of complexity.

Medtech Investing 2009: What's Changed?

The medical device industry is undergoing a crisis of funding, but not of confidence, according to a panel of investors convened at Windhover's recent medtech conference, In3 West,. The conference panel sought to explore how the medical device investment community is operating in these troubled times, how they will invest going forward, and how they will support their companies if things don't improve. We were especially curious to know if the funding challenges that start-ups face are really due to the overall dire economy, or if that dark cloud merely masks changing fundamentals in the medical device industry that are making it more difficult for companies to find funding, gain FDA approval, and enjoy a healthy exit. Our panel weighs in on the matter.
