The manual pacing threshold
of patients with unavailable ACap™ function was 0.
was defined as the lowest voltage, which can produce 5 consecutive stimuli and was measured at pulse duration of 0.
Different interelectrode spacings and pulse durations were not studied as they have no considerable effect on the pacing threshold
We reported that a pulse amplitude decrease of only 1V provides significant initial longevity gain of more than a year, suggesting that this simple procedure of great benefit should be done whenever other parameters like pacing threshold
011) and 87 percent fewer system revisions (p90 percent (lower CI >83 percent) at six months, and low and stable pacing thresholds
as demonstrated by 1.
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.
Both use silicone to insulate inner conduction materials, both elute a steroid to reduce pacing thresholds
, and both offer 10 mm tip-to-ring spacing.
Steroid-elution lead tip, which helps promote low chronic pacing thresholds
Built upon Guidant's history of proven lead design, the FLEXTEND pacing lead delivers low pacing thresholds
for long-term pacing performance.
