EXALT Model D Single Use Duodenoscope captis executive search management consulting leadership board services

Boston Scientific (NYSE: BSX) announced that the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) granted a New Technology Add-on Payment (NTAP) for single-use duodenoscopes, applicable to the EXALT™ Model D Single-Use Duodenoscope, as part of its Fiscal Year 2022 Hospital Inpatient Prospective Payment System.

NTAP was created to facilitate patient access for qualifying new medical technologies that substantially improve the diagnosis or treatment of Medicare beneficiaries. Beginning October 1, 2021, CMS will provide hospitals with additional device reimbursement when the EXALT Model D Single-Use Duodenoscope is used for eligible cases in the hospital inpatient setting.

The EXALT Model D Single-Use Duodenoscope is designed to eliminate the risk of infection due to  ineffective reprocessing of traditional reusable duodenoscopes. Duodenoscopes are used to diagnose and treat various pancreatic and biliary conditions during endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) procedures. Every year, more than 700,000 ERCP procedures are performed in the U.S. and approximately 1.5 million are completed worldwide.i In 2019 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommended that providers utilize duodenoscopes with disposable components or fully disposable devices, when available.ii

The EXALT Model D Single-Use Duodenoscope previously received Breakthrough Device Designation from the FDA as well as transitional pass-through (TPT) payment by CMS, the latter of which allows for incremental device reimbursement for Medicare cases performed in the hospital outpatient setting. Further, in response to a Boston Scientific request, CMS created two unique ICD-10 procedure codes for hospitals to facilitate reporting the use of single-use duodenoscopes when used in the hospital inpatient setting beginning October 1, 2021.

“Securing NTAP, in addition to TPT, for the EXALT Model D Duodenoscope will support health care providers in accessing this device for Medicare patients – a group that represents over 40% of all ERCPs performed in the U.S. each year,” said Dave Pierce, executive vice president and president, MedSurg and president, Endoscopy, Boston Scientific. “Adequate reimbursement is key for the adoption of any new technology, and this decision from CMS will help provide hospitals with the means to treat Medicare patients with this device.”

The EXALT Model D Duodenoscope is part of the Boston Scientific single-use device portfolio, which includes technologies within the gastrointestinal, pancreaticobiliary, surgical, urological and airway spaces such as the LithoVue™ Digital Flexible UreteroscopeSpyGlass™ DS Direct Visualization SystemSpyGlass™ Discover Digital Catheter, and EXALT™ Model B Single-Use Bronchoscope.iii

Broward Health First U.S. Hospital System Using Innovative VirtaMed Laparoscopic Simulator

Broward Health LaparoS high res scaled 1 captis executive search management consulting leadership board services

Broward Health Medical Center, home to the Broward Health Graduate Medical Education Simulation Lab in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has become the first United States medical institution to receive the VirtaMed LaparoS™ surgical training simulator. This mixed reality laparoscopic simulator provides resident doctors with a simulated environment to prepare for clinical practice safely and efficiently.

Broward Health will use the LaparoS for general surgery training with an emphasis on patient safety. First installed in June 2021, the LaparoS has left an impression on residents and professors alike.

“We chose the LaparoS because it offers our residents a more realistic simulation of what they will encounter in the operating room,” said Dr. Ivan Puente, General Surgery Program Director at Broward Health Medical Center. “We feel very strongly that this will not only enhance their skill development and also contribute to patient safety.”

The LaparoS training simulator is from VirtaMed, the world leader in medical simulation training. In contrast to other forms of medical training with simulators, LaparoS training modules capture the whole procedural preparation, including positioning of the patient and placement of tools.

The simulator offers real-time learning in the form of haptic feedback, complication training and guided procedures.

“Simulation is a great way to enhance medical skills,” says Kimberly Mazili, Business Development Manager for VirtaMed. “Broward Hospital Medical Center has already had years of success with our orthopaedics simulator. It was a logical step for Broward to be the first to get our new LaparoS so they could extend the capacity of their simulation center and their residency programs.”

Providing comprehensive training with medical simulation technology

Broward Health has a long history of using simulation to train its next generation of surgeons. Medical students at Broward Health Medical Center have access to a medical skills simulation lab with a variety of simulators, including the VirtaMed ArthroS™ simulator for arthroscopic skills training. The addition of the LaparoS expands the resources available for skills development in a risk-free training environment.

In the spirit of advancing medical education, Broward Health Medical Center hosted a VirtaMedEd training day for residents in general surgery, orthopedics and gynecology. Using simulators supplied by Broward Health’s Simulation Center and VirtaMed, the training day provided residents with an opportunity to practice instrument usage and specific procedures in a risk-free training environment.

HRS Scientific Sessions: Boston Scientific LBCT, Interview Opportunities

Untitled 1 scaled 1 captis executive search management consulting leadership board services

During the Heart Rhythm Scientific Sessions this week, Boston Scientific announced positive LBCT data underscoring the safety and efficacy of multi-site pacing (MSP) over conventional cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), as well as poster presentations on real-world use of the WATCHMAN Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC) device and next-generation WATCHMAN FLX LAAC device as alternatives to oral anticoagulation therapy for stroke risk reduction in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation.

Key findings from the studies include:

Data demonstrated that MSP with RESONATE™ X4 CRT-D devices is safe and effective when used in non-responders to conventional CRT, and showed that MSP can convert non-responders to responders with minimal impact to battery life of the CRT-D devices. The study had an initial responder rate to CRT therapy of 74% and exceeded pre-determined performance and safety goals:

o   At 12 months, 78 patients met the effectiveness endpoint analysis requirements and demonstrated a response rate to MSP of 51.3% (40/78), compared to a predefined goal of 5%.

o   A 99% complication free rate compared to a predefined goal of 90%.

FLXibility Post-Approval Study

  • The first patient follow-up visit data from the European FLXibility registry with the next-generation WATCHMAN FLX device demonstrated excellent procedural success rates in everyday clinical practice.

o   This included high effective LAA closure rates (87.6% complete seal, 12.4% residual blood flow size ≤ 5mm) and low short-term complications through 120 days, including 0.7% all-stroke, 1% pericardial effusion, 0.3% device embolization and no cases of systemic embolism.

o   These positive results are similar to those observed in the PINNACLE FLX pivotal approval trial, for which 2 -year results were just announced.

NESTed Post Approval Study

  • Two-year data from the NESTed Post-Approval Study with the WATCHMAN device, stemming from the NCDR LAAO Registry, demonstrated low rates of stroke and systemic embolism.

o   The study met its primary safety endpoint (defined as all-cause death, ischemic stroke, systemic embolism or procedure-related events requiring intervention within 7 days or hospital discharge) with a rate of 1.4%; and second primary efficacy endpoint (defined as 2-year ischemic stroke and systemic embolism) with a rate of 3.0%.

o   The first primary efficacy endpoint (defined as 2-year all-cause death, hemorrhagic stroke, ischemic stroke and systemic embolism) exceeded the performance goal at 17.1%, (PG was <15%), but was driven by non-cardiovascular mortality in this older, high-risk population.

What are the Most Commonly Performed Surgeries?

Untitled 1 scaled 1 captis executive search management consulting leadership board services

Whether you are trying to learn more about a surgery you are planning to have or find out what the most common procedures are, this list is here for you.

  1. Appendectomy

An appendectomy is a surgical procedure that is used to treat appendicitis, a condition that causes an acute inflammation of the appendix. It is believed that about 1 in 20 people will get appendicitis at some point in their lives, although about 40% of people will not suffer painful symptoms. If symptoms are too painful, you will have an appendectomy to remove your appendix.

  1. Breast Biopsy

This is a diagnostic test that involves removing breast tissue or cells with the use of a microscope. The purpose of this test is both for examination and treatment of a lump in the breast tissue.

  1. Carotid Endarterectomy

This surgery is used to remove blockages that occur in arteries located in the neck. These arteries are responsible for supplying the blood to the brain. If this surgery is not performed, then a patient runs the risk of suffering a stroke.

  1. Cataract Surgery

Every year about three million people undergo cataract surgery in the United States alone. This surgery is used to remove a cataract in the eye that causes obscured, blurred or clouded vision. Expert cataract surgeons will then replace the natural lens with a prosthetic replacement.

  1. Caesarean Section

More commonly known as a C-Section, these are planned or unplanned surgeries that are used to ensure the safety of a mother and baby during childbirth. It is believed that c-sections make up just over 30% of all births.

  1. Joint Replacement

More than one million Americans have joint replacement surgery each year. The most common type of joint replacement surgery is knee replacements, followed by hip replacements. Doctors will also perform these surgeries on other joints like the shoulder or ankle.

  1. Broken Bone Related Surgeries

Depending on the type of break, location, and severity, a patient might need to undergo surgery to recover from a broken bone. During the surgery a doctor might implant metal plates, screws, and rods to help keep a bone in place as it heals.

  1. Gallbladder Removal

The gallbladder is a small organ located just under the liver; it stores the fluid known as bile used in digestion. Gallbladder removal is usually a result of the development of gallstones. Gallstones are hardened deposits of digestive fluid that can block the flow of liquid out of the gallbladder to other organs.

  1. Heart Bypass Surgery

The most commonly performed type of heart bypass surgery is a coronary artery bypass graft. This surgery is used to treat the build-up of plaque that reduces blood flow to the heart muscles in patients that have coronary artery disease. When this surgery has not been performed, the build-up of plaque can cause a heart attack. This operation involves a doctor connecting a healthy artery to the blocked artery, allowing for fluid flow.

B2B Training: What’s the Most Effective Way of Learning?

B2B training, which is short for business-to-business training, is a popular and convenient type of training that enables entire companies to train their teams all at once by using an external training provider. In the era of the global pandemic of the COVID-19 virus, everything moved online, both jobs and studying, and therefore, training too.

The two most common types of remote training are online (on-demand), and virtual, instructor-led classes. A third type is the blended course, which is a unique type of carefully tailored training. Blended learning has been around for a while now, but it is still not common.

One important question arises in the middle of this topic: what is the most effective way of learning?

According to recent research conducted by Medical Device HQ, a company that specializes in providing medical device training in risk management and design control, a vast majority of people claimed that they learned more, or a lot more during their blended course compared to a 2-day classroom course.

MDHQ offers online and blended courses. Their blended learning courses consist of a pre-recorded online course the participants can take at their own pace and according to their schedule, and the live virtual Zoom sessions facilitated by the subject matter experts. In the period from June to December of 2020, Medical Device HQ delivered close to 50 blended courses, with around four hundred participants. The participants did a pre-course assessment quiz, then attended the online course, and took a final exam  qualifying them for a one-day live virtual class on Zoom.

B2B training captis executive search management consulting leadership board services

Figure 1 Jobs and training moved online during the pandemic

With a large part of the adult population experiencing fear and anxiety amidst the global pandemic of COVID-19, it is not hard to realize why people would have a strong preference towards online or virtual instructor-led training. Of those who had an opinion, an astounding number of 80,3% preferred the blended (online + live virtual) course above other types of courses after the pandemic as well.

The main reasons behind the course-taking preferences, as stated by the surveyed participants, were that they found the blended courses more engaging and interactive. Several common points that the majority stated were:

  • particularly enjoyed the theory being done first, then the practical part
  • could take the recorded online course at their own pace
  • appreciated the atmosphere where they got to work practically, hands-on, in the workshops
  • had the space for asking questions thanks to fewer participants on the live virtual class

What makes blended learning so effective?

The participants of the survey were asked how much they had learned on the blended course compared to a traditional 2-day classroom course. Out of all the people who took the blended courses on design control and risk management, a total of 85% thought they had learned more, or a lot more compared to a 2-day classroom course.

B2B training captis executive search management consulting leadership board services

Figure 2 Blended vs. traditional courses

The data showed that taking the blended course has proved to be more effective as opposed to traditional course-taking. The numbers speak for themselves – 57% of the people stated they think they learned more on the blended course, 28% said they learned a lot more, whereas 14% think they learned the same, and a total of 1% stated they learned less than in a traditional classroom course.

Since it is a regulatory requirement to evaluate the effectiveness of training actions taken in the medical device industry, the online format provided a good way of showing the effectiveness of the training by measuring results on a quiz before attending the training and after attending.

The participant went from 53% on the pre-course assessment that was made up of 12 random questions from question banks, to 96% on the final exam with 45 questions from a question bank.

Due to the aforementioned statistics, it is possible to assume that blended courses are the future of B2B learning, for several reasons. Namely, because blended learning is efficient and time-saving, but also because it has proved to be more effective in terms of the quality of learning.

New Study Proves Terpenes The Entourage Effect Can Help to Reduce Pain 1 captis executive search management consulting leadership board services

New Study Proves Terpenes & The Entourage Effect Can Help to Reduce Pain

New Study Proves Terpenes The Entourage Effect Can Help to Reduce Pain 1 captis executive search management consulting leadership board services

As medical research continues to establish the beneficial potential of plant compounds like cannabinoids and terpenes, more people are turning away from synthetic drugs and towards natural medicine. With quality terpenes more readily available for sale than ever before, it’s never been easier for patients and consumers to try the therapeutic properties of terpenes out for themselves.

What are terpenes?
The word “terpene” is actually short for “terpenoid,” a common name given to a diverse group of organic chemicals that all have an oxygen-carbon backbone formed from isoprene units, which are created when two isoprene molecules bond together. Terpenes are found in nearly every type of fruit, flower, spice or vegetable you can think of — though they’re most commonly associated with citrus fruits like limes, oranges and lemons. Terpenes can also be found in hops, the cannabis plant itself, conifers and other common plants like lavender.

Many people don’t know that terpenes are found in cannabis too, but they can offer some benefits on pain relief and mood improvement without getting you high like THC does. In fact, there’s evidence to suggest that terpenes alone may be able to reduce chronic pain symptoms better than prescription drugs like ibuprofen or acetaminophen (Tylenol).

Let’s examine how terpenes come together with cannabinoids to create beneficial so-called “Entourage Effects” — as well as the latest scientific findings on the matter — to help you decide if trying out terpenes is right for you.

A Crash Course on the Entourage Effect
Terpenes are known for providing therapeutic effects when combined in the right doses with other cannabinoids, such as THC or CBD. This is called the Entourage Effect.

The Entourage Effect is a term that is used to describe how terpenes and cannabinoids work together synergistically, rather than in isolation. It has been hypothesized that the various benefits found with CBD come from this combined effect. The difference between THC and CBD is that when you ingest the latter, your body metabolizes the compound and eliminates it from your system at a much slower rate than THC. This allows for the CBD to affect your body for a longer period of time.

When consumed, cannabinoids like THC, CBD and terpenes bind to receptors throughout the body known as CB1 and CB2 receptors. When certain molecules lock into these receptors, they can have different effects on our bodies depending on which receptor is activated.

Research has shown that when your body is exposed to both CBD and a terpene such as myrcene, the effects of CBD can be amplified due to the terpene’s ability to alter your bodies’ chemical makeup. This means the Entourage Effect can allow for greater anxiolytic, analgesic or even  anti-inflammatory potential for patients using CBD as a form of self-medication or health supplementation.

New Study Substantiates Key Proposed Mechanics of the Entourage Effect
While many within the scientific community rule out the Entourage Effect as pseudoscience, a new University of Arizona Health Sciences study by LaVigne, Hecksel, Streicher and Keresztes shows the opposite. The April study “is the first to show that terpenes and cannabinoids can produce an additive effect when combined. It is also the first to identify the CB1, CB2 and A2a receptors as terpene targets, and describe the role of these receptors in producing terpene cannabimimetic effects in vivo.”

According to Streicher et al., terpenes and cannabinoids have thus far only been hypothesized to interact and produce a resulting entourage effect because very few studies have attempted to identify targets or mechanisms for these compounds at a molecular level.

The Need for Further Medical Research into Terpenes & Cannabinoids
If anything, this article has just given us a glimpse of the tremendous potential for terpenes and the Entourage Effect to positively change the future of medicine. There’s a lot of work that still needs to be done in order to fully understand how cannabinoids and terpenes can affect a great number of other neurophysiological conditions.

Further study into the Entourage Effect is needed so we can help patients looking for alternative remedies that provide therapeutic effects without psychoactivity, or the dangerous side effects associated with synthetic drugs.

AlixPartners Forecasts: Household Products Could Cost U.S. Manufacturers and Consumers 15% More This Year Due to Resin Shortage

Untitled 1 scaled 1 captis executive search management consulting leadership board services

According to AlixPartners, across the U.S. economy, prices are rising for many products, from building materials and appliances to food and computer chips. Further price increases are now on the way for many other consumer products due to unprecedented shortages and disruption in the supply chain for the fossil fuel-based resin market. Resins are used worldwide in everyday household plastic products such as diapers, trash bags, beverage bottles, containers for personal care products and detergents, as well as plumbing pipes, medical devices, and toys.

“U.S. consumers are already feeling the pinch in their household budgets, and it is likely to get worse before it gets better,” said Marc Iampieri, Managing Director in the Operations and Transportation & Logistics practices at AlixPartners. “Frankly, this has potential to become a hidden version of the semiconductor crisis for many of the same reasons. Rising demand for plastic products combined with recent supply disruptions has led to complications around quality, cost, and timeliness of delivery. Because these products often have low profit margins, those in the industry have no choice but to pass the higher costs onto consumers. The top priority for companies right now is to mitigate the risk and impact of supply chain disruption, which include building more flexibility into production, rebalancing the supply chain, and rethinking delivery and distribution.” More here.

How To Control a Radio Frequency (RF) Process

Untitled 1 scaled 1 captis executive search management consulting leadership board services

The radio frequency (RF) welding and manufacturing process uses electromagnetic energy and pressure to fuse and permanently bond vinyl, thermoplastic, and coated materials to produce a specific product – all according to customer requirements. Using this RF sealing process, a distinct, one-piece perpetual bond is formulated that is both solid and resistant to ripping or tearing.

But how is this process controlled, and with what specific tools? Is there specific training and expertise required to manage this process, and how successful are the eventual outcomes from radio frequency welding? This article will attempt to review and describe these important control mechanisms that produce countless products, especially within the medical industry, which currently has all our focus due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. 

How is The Radio Frequency Spectrum Regulated for Organizations and Businesses Who Utilize It?

All of the serviceable regions of the RF spectrum (10 kHz–350 GHz) are regulated. Globally, the International Telecommunication Union, which is an entity governed by the United Nations, maintains data allocations that divide the world into three regions, each one possessing diverse radio controls and allocations.

In the U.S., the jurisdiction to govern the RF spectrum usage is divided between two key government agencies: the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, and the Federal Communications Commission. The operating rules of these two agencies are comprehensive and are classified into law within the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations.

How is The RF Process Controlled and Managed?

Radio frequency welding relies on the vibration and adjustment of charged molecules within the polymer chain to produce heat. Polyvinyl Chloride and polyurethanes are the most common thermoplastics to be fused via the RF welding process.

Materials such as polyester film or polymer laminates, which possess high dielectric properties, are used to line the base platen. These ‘buffer’ materials insulate the welded area, allowing greater welding coverage for a supplied amount of RF energy. They also prevent the tear-seal electrode edges from touching the bottom platen, which results in an arc – ending in a failed manufactured item.

The quality of the welds formed by the RF welding process is governed by an intricate aggregate of machine parameters such as frequency, power output, bar temperature and pressure, and the material type and its thickness. Accordingly, optimum welding conditions are assessed by an experienced welding operator. In addition, the quality of the resultant welds is determined by performing a simple pull-test to evaluate the weld’s failure load, or by scanning the created weld bead between the fused material layers.

Factors That Control the Most Reliable Sealing Process

Various determinants are considered when settling on a process that will best suit the materials used, including the following:

  • The requisite internal pressure for gas, air, or fluid containment,
  • The variety of ports, tubes, or accessories that are required to be appended to the welded assembly,
  • The width or breadth of the weld stitching or seamed seal.

When It Is Ideal to Use RF Welding

The RF welding method is typically used for moderate sized results that require welding equivalent material types together.

Advantages

  • One distinct advantage of utilizing the RF welding method is that it allows greater direction when working with incredibly thin materials and also with those materials that possess compressed dimensional thresholds.
  • RF welding is quick, and the process substantially heats the material swiftly, is considered safe to handle, and maintains its configuration shortly after sealing concludes.
  • A radio frequency fused seam provides the most dependable quality seal in both presentation and bond enforcement.

Applications

Radio frequency welding or sealing is completely suitable for the following scenarios:

  • Base to moderate-sized products and manufactured units,
  • Outputs that require quality tubes, ports, or accessory welds,
  • A large number of units to be manufactured and within a tight timeframe or deadline,
  • For manageable products which demand restricted or tightly configured joints or seams,
  • If closely defined dimensional thresholds are required,
  • If incredibly thin materials are required to be welded or joined together.

The benefits of industrial RF welding services are diverse and numerous, such as the following:

  • A fluid or leak-proof seal,
  • An air-tight seal,
  • Greater resistance to shearing, splitting, or tearing,
  • Non-arced seams and curved edged materials,
  • Near imperceptible welding outcomes,
  • Weld strength exceeding that of the core material,
  • More comprehensive configuration options,
  • Increased manufacturing efficiency and performance with certain products.

Conclusion

The most reliable and trustworthy sealing process for any product treatment is customarily determined by the materials that will be used, the size of the end product and configuration, and the quantity required to be manufactured. The fusing of multiple types of flexible materials via radio frequency welding is a dependable option for creating sealed, leak-proof connections on products used in military, medical and industrial applications. In addition, RF welding processes offer uniformity in replicating elements under reliable working conditions, and without toxic adhesives or solvents.
