Family of LV Leads

Product Highlights

  • MRI Ready lead tested in combination with MR Conditional devices for full-body scans using a 1.5 T (Tesla) field strength scanner*
  • Proven Quartet™ LV lead performance with additional Quadripolar lead options to match a patient’s anatomy
  • The Quartet™ Family of LV leads offers more distal shape options including the Large-S and Small-S as well as more total electrode spacing options including 40, 47 and 60 mm
  • Four unique pacing electrodes to provide more options and greater control in pacing vector selection
  • Superb deliverability with exceptional stability and performance
  • Low profile — 4.7 F lead body; 4.0 F lead tip
  • Optim™ lead insulation—a chemical co-polymer with proven strength and durability, demonstrating long-term abrasion resistance and biostability1,2
  • Steerable tip — distal tip angle can be controlled to maneuver through venous anatomy
  • Flexible lead body — narrow ring electrodes provide lead tip flexibility
  • Allows Direct-To-Target™ delivery placement through CPS Aim™ SL slittable inner catheter to deliver leads to small, acute venous anatomies that may have been unreachable in the past
  • Compatible with over-the-wire guidewire or stylet approaches
