Recently, a permanently implantable
wireless system, designed to monitor and manage pulmonary artery (PA)
pressures remotely, demonstrated significant reductions in heart failure
(HF) hospitalizations in high-risk symptomatic patients, regardless of
ejection fraction. The objectives of this study were to simulate the
estimated clinical and economic impact in Germany of generalized use of
this PA pressure monitoring system considering reductions of HF
hospitalizations and the improvement in Quality of Life.


on the Prospective Health Technology Assessment approach, we simulated
the potential of the widespread application of PA pressure monitoring on
the German healthcare system for the period 2009-2021.


healthcare economic simulation formulated input assumptions based on
results from the CHAMPION Trial, a multicenter, prospective, randomized
controlled U.S. trial that demonstrated a 37% reduction of
hospitalizations in persistently symptomatic previous HF patients. Based
on these results, an estimated 114,800 hospitalizations would expected
to be avoided. This effect would potentially save an estimated €522
million, an equivalent of $575 million, during the entire simulation


This healthcare economic modeling of
the PA pressure monitoring system's impact demonstrates substantial
clinical and economic benefits in the German healthcare system.
