Tendril Pacing Leads

For years, the Tendril™ pacing lead family has helped to improve patient health and restore quality of life to millions across the globe. The Tendril STS™ lead and the Tendril MRI™ lead are both MR Conditional, giving you the options you need to provide the best technology for your patients and their evolving medical needs.

Tendril STS Pacing Lead

The Tendril STS pacing lead is the most preferred Abbott active fixation lead.¹ It is a 6FR compatible lead optimized to provide flexible and superb handling characteristics with more pliability at the lead-endocardium interface.

Small Diameter Lead

Compatible with a 6F introducer, the Tendril STS lead eases implantation. The thin profile is designed to:

  • Improve venous passage
  • Accommodate additional leads within a single vessel
  • Reduce the risk of rib-clavicle crush and venous thrombosis
  • Provide more options for lead access in a small cephalic vein

Soft Silicone Tip

You can improve implant safety while taking advantage of the clinical benefits of thin-profile leads with the Tendril STS lead’s soft silicone tip design.2 The Tendril STS lead provides:

  • A tip pressure reduction of 30% (mean) over 6F leads without a soft silicone tip2
  • An increase in lead tip surface area of 35% over 6F leads without a soft silicone tip2
  • Compatibility with a 6F introducer due to the tip material’s soft nature
