Tendril MRI™

Pacing Lead

Product Highlights

  • The Tendril MRI™ lead is designed to allow patients to undergo MRI scans when used with an MRI Ready device*
  • Utilizes a unique, dual filtering system that has been shown to minimize lead-tip heating1
  • Soft silicone tip offers more compliance at the lead tipendocardium interface
     - The soft silicone tip on the Tendril MRI lead reduces tip pressure by approximately > 30% over 6 F leads without a soft silicone tip.**2,3 Though the soft silicone increases the surface area of the lead tip to 9 F, the Tendril MRI lead still fits through an 8 F introducer due to the material’s soft nature. Four pads on the silicone tip further increase the surface area of the lead tip that is in contact with the tissue
  • Optim™ lead insulation—a chemical co-polymer that blends the best features of polyurethane and silicone—provides improved handling and increased durability
  • Limited lifetime warranty*

Brief Summary: Prior to using these devices, please review the User’s Manual for a complete listing of indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, potential adverse events and directions for use.

  

Indications: The Tendril MRI™lead is designed for permanent sensing and pacing in either the right atrium or the right ventricle, in combination with a compatible device.

 

Active leads such as the Tendril MRI lead may be indicated for patients where permanent fixation of passive leads is suspected to be unstable. In atrial applications, the use of a screw-in lead such as Tendril MRI lead may be indicated in the presence of an abnormal, surgically altered or excised atrial appendage.

 

This is an MR Conditional lead.

 

MR Conditional Pacing System: The St. Jude Medical™ MRI conditional lead is part of the St. Jude Medical™ MRI conditional pacing system. Patients with an implanted St. Jude Medical™ MRI conditional pacing system can have an MRI scan if the conditions for use, as described in the MRI Procedure Information document, are met.

 

Contraindications: The Tendril MRI™ lead is contraindicated in the presence of tricuspid atresia, for patients with mechanical tricuspid valves, and in patients who are expected to be hypersensitive to a single dose of one milligram of dexamethasone sodium phosphate.

 

Adverse Events: Potential complications associated with the use of Tendril MRI leads are the same as with the use of other active fixation leads and include: perforation of the myocardium, cardiac tamponade, phrenic nerve stimulation, dislodgement of the pacing lead, embolism, temporary or permanent loss of stimulation and/or sensing, infection, valve and/or vessel damage, tissue necrosis.
