The newly-approved FDA products include Boston Scientific's (BSX) Dynagen Mini and Inogen Mini implanatable defibrillators (ICDs), and its Dynagen X4 and Inogen X4 heart failure devices (CRT-Ds).

BSX asserts its Mini ICDs are "up to 20 percent smaller by volume and up to 24 percent thinner than competitive devices," and that its X4 CRT-Ds offer "70 percent more pacing options to address high capture thresholds and phrenic nerve stimulation effectively, along with the largest battery capacity in the industry."
