The Tendril MRI lead offers unique design advantages to allow patients to undergo full-body, high power 1.5T MRI scans. Now, your pacemaker patients can have access to the diagnostic benefits that MRI scans provide.
When combined with the Assurity MRI, Endurity MRI or Accent MRI pacemaker, the Tendril MRI lead:
Allows full-body, 1.5T MRI scans without scan exclusion zones
Permits a maximum whole body averaged specific absorption rate (SAR) up to 4 Watts per kilogram (Wkg)
Additionally, the Tendril MRI lead features a unique, dual-filtering lead tip proven to reduce distal heating.1
Soft silicone tip design
The Tendril family of leads includes a soft silicone tip design for flexibility and superb handling characteristics. The soft silicone tip:
Offers more compliance at the lead tip-endocardium interface
Reduces tip pressure by approximately 50% over 6 F leads without a soft silicone tip 2,3
Increases the surface area of the lead tip to 9 F
Although the soft silicone increases the surface area, the Tendril MRI lead still fits through an 8 F introducer due to the material soft nature. Four pads on the silicone tip further increase the surface area of the lead tip that is in contact with the tissue.
