The world’s smallest and thinnest ICD.1 / Boston Scientific provides devices tailored to individual needs. Up to 20% smaller and 24% thinner than other ICDs on the market2, the MINI offers all the power of a Boston Scientific ICD in a device that is the industry’s sleekest2 and designed for patient comfort.

Models D020, D021, D022, and D023

  • The world’s smallest and thinnest2 high-energy ICD designed to enhance patient comfort.

  • Includes the new EasyView™ header with color coded lead ports, designed to improve implant efficiency.
  • Offers an uncompromised set of features including:


- An advanced system solution for patient comorbidities and HF monitoring (HF Perspectiv™ report, LATITUDE™ NXT Remote Patient Management* enabled with weight scale and blood pressure sensors, and Respiratory Rate Trend).

- AcuShock™ Advanced Technology, multiple programmable options to reduce inappropriate and unnecessary shocks, including a choice of rhythm discriminators, antitachycardia pacing (ATP) therapy in all rates zones, and advanced sensing and filtering.

- RhythmID™ with RhythmMatch™ feature to allow customization of Rhythm ID algorithm to reduce inappropriate shocks.

- AV Search+ and RYTHMIQ™ which gives clinicians options to appropriately manage RV pacing in patients with varying degrees of conduction block.

- Wireless ECG to save time and simplify follow-up.

- SafetyCore™ technology intended to provide lifesaving shock therapy and basic pacing functionality in the event of an unrecoverable fault.

a Assumes ZIP™ telemetry use for 1 hour at implant time and for 40 minutes annually for in-clinic follow-up checks.
b Assumes standard use of the LATITUDE™ Communicator as follows: Daily Device Check on, monthly Full Interrogations (scheduled remote follow ups, and quarterly patient-interrogations).
c Assumes 60 bpm LRL, ventricular and atrial settings of 2.5 V pacing pulse Amplitude and 0.4 ms pacing pulse width; RA Impedance 500 ; sensors On.
d Projected longevity is calculated assuming 3 maximum energy charging cycles per year, including automatic capacitor re-forms and therapeutic shocks. For the final year of device service, an additional 5 charging cycles
are assumed to account for additional automatic capacitor re-forms as the device approaches the Explant indicator. These calculations also assume 3-channel EGM Onset is set to On,and that the pulse generator spends
6 months in Storage mode during shipping and storage.


Longevity Information

  • For longevity calculations based on different settings please contact Boston Scientific technical services or your local representative.

  • Boston Scientific devices have a limited product warranty of 5 years (VR and DR) in available geographies. See www.bostonscientific.com/cardiac-rhythm-resources for complete warranty terms and conditions.
  • Devices use Li/MnO2 battery chemistry.
  • The usable battery capacity is 1.0 Amp-hours for the MINI ICD (typical implant to battery capacity depleted).
  • Shelf life is 2 years (before use by date).
