Tendril® STS

Pacing Lead

Product Highlights

  • Soft silicone tip offers more compliance and less tip pressure at the lead tipendocardium interface.
  • Small diameter lead offers improved ease of venous passage, reduced risk of venous thrombosis or rib-clavicle crush and ability to accommodate additional leads more easily.
  • Optim® lead insulation – a chemical co-polymer that blends the best features of polyurethane and silicone for improved handling and increased durability.
  • Titanium nitride (TiN) fractal coating on the tip and ring electrodes is designed to promote precise sensing and to provide improved contact with the myocardium.
  • Lubricious Fast-Pass® coating facilitates lead insertion through the introducer and veins to ease implantation.
  • Fits through a 6 F introducer.

Indications: Tendril® STS 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 STS lead may be indicated for patients where permanent fixation of passive leads is suspected to be unstable.

In atrial applications, the use of screw-in leads such as Tendril STS lead may be indicated in the presence of an abnormal, surgically altered or excised atrial appendage.

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

Potential Adverse Events: Potential complications associated with the use of Tendril STS lead are the same as with the use of other active fixation leads and include: cardiac tamponade, diaphragmatic stimulation, embolism, excessive bleeding, induced ventricular ectopy, infection, loss of pacing and/or sensing due to dislodgment or mechanical malfunction of the pacing lead, phrenic nerve stimulation, thrombosis. Complications reported with direct subclavian venipuncture include pneumothorax, hemothorax, laceration of the subclavian artery, arteriovenous fistula, neural damage, thoracic duct injury, cannulation of other vessels, massive hemorrhage and, rarely, death.
