Information for the public

NICE has assessed ENDURALIFE-powered cardiac resynchronisation therapy-defibrillator (CRT-D) devices for treating heart failure to help the NHS decide whether to use this product.

A CRT-D is a type of implantable device used to treat heart failure. It sends small electrical signals to both lower chambers of the heart, helping the chambers to beat more in sync. ENDURALIFE is a battery technology for these devices.

ENDURALIFE-powered CRT-Ds have longer battery life than non-ENDURALIFE-powered CRT-Ds. A device that lasts longer may need to be replaced less often.
