Information for our CHSS members regarding discontinuation of the MICRONY Pacemaker
It has been recently announced that the Microny Pacemaker has been discontinued by Abbott (previously St. Jude). For years this device has been the smallest pacemaker on the market at 5.9 cc, and has been an essential option for the smallest of children who require pacing, particularly premature infants, as the next smallest device is 30% larger than the Microny.

John W. Kirklin/David Ashburn Fellowship Endowment Fund

The Kirklin/Ashburn Fellowship Fund was established to support the CHSS Data Center Research Fellow. In 2008, CHSS changed the name of the John W. Kirklin Fellowship Endowment Fund to the John W Kirklin/David A. Ashburn Fellowship Endowment Fund. This change was made in recognition of Dr. David Ashburn, the very first Kirklin Fellow, who was tragically killed when his flight crashed on June 4, 2007 after procuring a donor organ for transplantation.

The CHSS Data Center, located at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, plays a crucial role in recording, analyzing and tracking the data of many patients with congenital heart disease. Moreover, the Research Fellow is critical to furthering the goals of both the CHSS and the Data Center while providing an outstanding research experience for a young trainee. In order to recruit the very best talent available, we must ensure that the John W. Kirklin/David Ashburn Fellowship Fund is fully supported.
