MICRA TRANSCATHETER PACING SYSTEM

Meet Micra

Micra™ Transcatheter Pacing System (TPS) is the world’s smallest pacemaker,1 delivered percutaneously via a minimally invasive approach, directly into the right ventricle without the use of leads.
  • Miniaturized, 93% smaller than conventional pacemakers2
  • Designed to eliminate pocket- and lead-related complications3
  • FDA approved for 1.5T or 3T MRI scans4
  • Resulted in 99.2% implant success rate, 0 dislodgements, 0 systemic infections in 725-patient global trial4
  • Reduced complications by 51% versus traditional pacemakers4
  • New ultra low-power circuit design delivers an estimated average 12-year battery longevity4

MICRA IMPLANT PROCEDURE


THE MICRA TRANSCATHETER PACING SYSTEM INCLUDES THREE ELEMENTS:

Micra Pacing Capsule with FlexFix™ Nitinol Tines
  • Provides atraumatic and secure device placement
  • Two tines have 15 times the holding force necessary to hold the device in place5
  • Designed to minimize tissue trauma during deployment, repositioning, and retrieval6
  • Optimal electrode tissue interface allows for low and stable chronic thresholds7


Micra Delivery Catheter
  • 105-cm long catheter system with a handle that controls deflection and deployment of the Micra Pacing Capsule


Micra Introducer
  • Lubricious hydrophilic coating facilitates smooth vessel entry
  • 23 Fr inner diameter (27 Fr outer diameter)
  • Silicone-oil-coated dilator tip





INTEGRATED DELIVERY SYSTEM:




EVICE LIFE CYCLE MANAGEMENT OPTIONS
  • Micra can be turned OFF and an additional Micra can be added. (Micra takes up <1% of the volume of a normal right ventricle.), or
  • Micra can be turned OFF and a traditional system or upgrade can be implanted.
  • The Micra design incorporates a proximal retrieval feature to enable acute retrieval.
