Our lead device offering is built on years of proven lead technology. We design for superb deliverability, stability and performance. We continue to develop unique leads for better management of your heart failure patients.¹

Durata Defibrillation Lead

Designed to offer high-performance handling and more control at implant, the Durata™ defibrillation lead is a cardiac lead that has a proven structural design for reliability2,3 and long-term durability.4 The Durata lead is designed to deal with challenging ICD lead cases, including cases requiring multi-lead systems, lead replacement or with patients who have small or tortuous veins.

Quartet Quadripolar LV Lead

The Quartet™ quadripolar LV lead offers superb deliverability with exceptional stability and performance. With four electrodes and up to 14 pacing configurations, the quadripolar system enables left ventricular (LV) pacing at the preferred site without compromising lead stability.¹

Tendril Pacing Leads

The Tendril™ pacing lead family has helped to improve patient health and restore quality of life to thousands across the globe. The Tendril™ STS pacing lead is the most preferred Abbott active fixation lead.² Compatible with a 6F introducer, the Tendril STS lead has a thin profile, soft silicone tip and abrasion-resistant Optim™ lead insulation.³ Both the Tendril STS lead and the Tendril MRI™ lead are MR Conditional.

Indications, Safety and Warnings

Durata
Family of Defibrillation Leads

Rx Only

Brief Summary: Prior to using these devices, please review the User’s Manual for a complete listing of indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, potential adverse events and directions for use.

Indications and Usage: The Durata lead is intended for permanent sensing and pacing of the right ventricle and the delivery of cardioversion/defibrillation therapy when used with a compatible Abbott pulse generator.

Contraindications: Durata leads are contraindicated in the following:

  • Patients with tricuspid valvular disease or a mechanical tricuspid valve.
  • Patients with ventricular tachyarrhythmias resulting from transient or correctable factors such as drug toxicity, electrolyte imbalance, or acute myocardial infarction.
  • Patients for whom a single dose of 1.0 mg of dexamethasone sodium phosphate is contraindicated.
  • For use with extra firm (red color knob) stylets.

Adverse Events: Potential adverse events include: cardiac tamponade, hemorrhage, pneumothorax, air embolism, venous thrombosis and/or obstruction, tissue necrosis, tricuspid valve dysfunction, infection.

Quartet
Family of LV Leads

Rx Only

Brief Summary: Prior to using these devices, please review the User’s Manual for a complete listing of indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, potential adverse events and directions for use.

Indications and Usage: The Quartet lead is intended for permanent sensing and pacing of the left ventricle when used with a compatible Abbott biventricular system.

Contraindications: The use of the Quartet lead is contraindicated in patients who:

  • Are expected to be hypersensitive to a single dose of 1.0 mg of dexamethasone sodium phosphate.
  • Are unable to undergo an emergency thoracotomy procedure.
  • Have coronary venous vasculature that is inadequate for lead placement, as indicated by venogram.

Adverse Events: Potential adverse events associated with the use of left ventricular leads include: cardiac/coronary sinus dissection, cardiac/coronary sinus perforation, cardiac tamponade, coronary sinus or cardiac vein thrombosis, death, endocarditis, excessive bleeding, hematoma/seroma, induced atrial or ventricular arrhythmias, infection, lead dislodgment, local tissue reaction, formation of fibrotic tissue, myocardial irritability, myopotential sensing, pectoral/diaphragmatic/phrenic nerve stimulation, pericardial effusion, pericardial rub, pneumothorax/hemothorax, pulmonary edema, thrombolytic or air embolism, valve damage.

Tendril
Family of Pacing Leads

Rx Only

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.

Indications: The Tendril STS Model 2088TC and Tendril MRI™ Model LPA1200M leads are designed for permanent sensing and pacing in either the right atrium or the right ventricle, in combination with a compatible device. Active leads such as the Tendril STS Model 2088TC and Tendril MRI Model LPA1200M leads may be indicated for patients where permanent fixation of passive leads is suspected to be unstable. In atrial applications, the use of the screw-in leads such as Tendril STS Model 2088TC and Tendril MRI Model LPA1200M leads may be indicated in the presence of an abnormal, surgically altered or excised atrial appendage.

Contraindications: The Tendril STS Model 2088TC and Tendril MRI Model LPA1200M leads are 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 Tendril STS Model 2088TC and Tendril MRI Model LPA1200M 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 dislodgement or mechanical malfunction of the pacing lead, phrenic nerve stimulation, thrombosis.

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