ISOLINE([TM]) leads also offer EASYTURN[TM]: a quick lead placement system for positioning the lead and extending the helix with a single stylet, and Easy Mapping to obtain pacing thresholds without helix extension.
Once there, the electrode employs steroid-elution technology that has been demonstrated to minimize the body's inflammatory response, and thus improve endocardial conductivity and reduce pacing thresholds.
The bipolar design and excellent stability of the QuickSite 1056T lead allow physicians to select a biventricular pacing configuration that provides low pacing thresholds while avoiding anodal stimulation," said James H.
While the low incidence of diaphragmatic stimulation with unipolar leads has always been desirable, now patients can receive the benefits of true bipolar lead pacing, which include low pacing thresholds and V-V timing that stimulates more natural heart rhythms.
