AV PlusDX VDD

Pacing Lead

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

  • Depending on the model, the AV Plus DX lead is available in multiple lengths, affording physicians the flexibility to address the needs of patients with varying physical statures
  • Radiopaque Suture Sleeve is designed to be visible on fluoroscopy, helping physicians to locate the suture sleeve during implant
  • Fast-Pass coating makes the lead highly lubricious, helping to facilitate lead insertion through the introducer and the veins
  • Durable Design utilises a bipolar coaxial multifilar lead body design with silicone insulation construction
  • Tip electrode surface area helps to provide higher lead impedance, thereby reducing pacing current drain and enhancing longevity
  • Offers a steroid-eluting plug inside the lead’s tip electrode that is designed to reduce tissue inflammation at the electrode-tissue interface
  • The tip and ring electrodes are coated with titanium nitride (TiN), which is designed to expand the electrode’s virtual surface area, thus providing low polarisation values and improved sensing

Brief Summary: Prior to using these devices, please review the Instructions for Use for a complete listing of indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, potential adverse events and directions for use. Devices depicted may not be available in all countries. Check with your St. Jude Medical representative for product availability in your country.

Indications: The AV Plus DX VDD lead is designed for permanent sensing and pacing in the atrium with a compatible pulse generator. An active lead, such as the AV Plus DX VDD, may be indicated for patients where permanent fixation of passive leads is suspected to be unstable. In atrial applications, the use of a screw-in lead, such as the AV Plus DX VDD, may be indicated in the presence of an abnormal, surgically altered or excised atrial appendage.

Contraindications: The AV Plus DX VDD lead is contraindicated: In the presence of tricuspid atresia, for patients with mechanical tricuspid valves, in patients who are expected to be hypersensitive to a single dose of one milligram of dexamethasone sodium phosphate.

Adverse Events: Potential complications associated with the use of AV Plus DX VDD leads are the same as with the use of other active fixation leads and include: cardiac tamponade, diaphragmatic stimulation, embolism, excessive bleeding, induced ventricular ectopy, infection, loss of pacing and/or sensing due to dislodgment or mechanical malfunction of the pacing lead, phrenic nerve stimulation, thrombosis. Complications reported with direct subclavian venipuncture include pneumothorax, hemothorax, laceration of the subclavian artery, arteriovenous fistula, neural damage, thoracic duct injury, cannulation of other vessels, massive hemorrhage and, rarely, death.

Refer to the User’s manual for detailed indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions and potential adverse events.
