Chronic retrieval

AVEIR VR Leadless Pacing is designed for chronic 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

Greater than 88%


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

Greater than 92.5%


The AVEIR VR LP's predicate device has an overall chronic retrieval success rate of 92.5% for implants ≥ 5 years.1,2

Aveir VR Leadless Pacemaker battery capacity 243 mAh Micra Leadless Pacemaker  120 mAh

AVEIR VR Leadless Pacemaker has more than double the battery capacity of current leadless pacemakers (243 mAh1 vs 120 mAh3)

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
