New Lead technology for Cardiac Resynchronisation


New Lead technology for Cardiac Resynchronisation. Clinical studies have proven the effectiveness of cardiac synchronisation therapy (CRT) in reducing mortality and improving the quality of heart failure patients'life. In CRT therapy it is necessary to implant pacing leads into both the right and left ventricles of the heart. These insulated wires carry electrical impulses from pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) or CRT devices to specific locations within the cardiac chambers. However, significant challenges are still faced during implantations of left ventricular leads, with difficulties in achieving stable fixation in the targeted position, due to frequent variations in patient pathology and anatomy, resulting in complications, re-hospitalisation and further surgery. A world first has been achieved with the release and implantation of the Corox OTW Bipolar lead family using co-radial TwinFlex Technology. Corox OTW offers two completely different fixation solutions to overcome challenging implantations and ensure the delivery of effective therapy. Twinflex technology is the next generation in-lead technology ensuring smoother implantations with reduced complications and stronger performance over the longer term. The innovative technology greatly enhances lead flexibility while ensuring efficient energy transfer resulting in greater energy being delivered to the myocardium. A combination of silicone, polyurethane and ETFE (ethylene/tetrafluoroethylene) provide highly secure insulation for long-term performance. Two unique fixation mechanisms offer flexible options to overcome all vessel shapes and sizes. New Lead technology for Cardiac Resynchronisation
