Design and evaluation of a low threshold, porous tip lead with a mannitol coated screw-in tip ("Sweet Tip").

Abstract

A screw-in transvenous lead has been developed for permanent atrial or ventricular pacing that makes insertion of a fixed helix lead smoother and less complicated. The helix has a mannitol coating that protects the helix during insertion and dissolves in the blood stream allowing the fixation of the helix by screwing it into the endocardium. The Sweet Tip lead features a porous tip mesh electrode designed to improve pacing and sensing thresholds, and HP silicone insulation of previously demonstrated reliability.

Atrial Filbrillation

Atrial fibrillation refers to the abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating of the atria. Here is the latest research.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
