AVEIR VR Leadless Pacemaker

Aveir VR Leadless Pacemaker

The next evolution
in leadless technology 

At Abbott, we adapt quickly to changes in the world around us, harnessing leading-edge science and technology to deliver the best possible solutions for some of the world’s most important health challenges. Medical devices, like the Abbott AVEIR™ VR Leadless Pacemaker, use the most advanced technologies to keep hearts beating more regularly.

Long Term Retrieval

AVEIR VR Leadless Pacing is designed for long term retrieval using a dedicated retrieval catheter.1

Active Fixation Helix

AVEIR VR Leadless Pacemaker active fixation helix uses a screw-in mechanism to enable both implantation and chronic retrieval of the Leadless Pacemaker.1


The AVEIR VR LP's predicate device has an overall long term retrieval success rate above 88% with helix fixation with up to 9 years of retrieval experience.1,2 AVEIR VR LP is designed for long term retrieval.1 Limited data is available for AVEIR VR LP.

Long Lasting

Increased projected battery longevity over current available leadless pacemakers3,4** opens the door to more patients.

Mean ± SD: 17.6±6.6 years
95% CI: 16.6 to 18.6 years

Projected years of battery life comparison Aveir VR leadless pacemaker vs Micra leadless pacemaker

The average battery longevity among Leadless II phase 2 IDE patients at 1 year follow-up is estimated to be 17.6 years

48% of the study patients have an estimated battery longevity of over 20 years.

Mapping prior to fixation

AVEIR VR Leadless Pacemaker can measure R-waves, impedance, and an initial capture threshold before fixation by simply touching the electrode to the endocardial tissue.1,4 AVEIR VR Leadless Pacemaker is engaged with a rotational motion into the endocardium. 


AVEIR VR Leadless Pacemaker mapping capability is designed to help reduce the number of repositioning attempts.1,4

120 Clinic Personnel

83.2% of patients had successful implants with no repositioning attempts4

36 Electrophysiologists

96.4% of patients had successful implants in 1 or less repositioning attempts4

Life-Changing Innovation

Dual-Chamber System Upgradability

Should new pacing indications present, the software for AVEIR VR Ventricular LP is designed to pair with AVEIR AR Atrial LP, allowing the devices to upgrade to an AVEIR DR Dual Chamber Leadless Pacemaker System.1**
