Tendril Pacing Leads

The Clinically proven Tendril™ STS pacing lead has been enhanced with the addition of SurGrip™ technology, providing a new level of secure fixation and advanced lead protection.

The Tendril STS with SurGrip technology provides a reliable, safe and 'No Wait' MRI-ready solution with the performance you can depend on. 

NEW Suture Sleeve with SurGrip Technology

  • New SurGrip Technology provides secure fixation with a uniquely designed channel and novel geomtery1
  • Wider spacing and less force results in easier-tie-down, accommodating a reange of implant techniques1
  • The novel design minimizes possible lead damage due to overtightening, providing enhanced lead protection1

Optim Lead Insulation for Long-term Durability

Minimize lead abrasion with Optim™ lead insulation, a unique hybrid material that:

  • Blends the biostability and flexibility of silicone with the durability and lubricity of polyurethane
  • Provides abrasion resistance to minimize the risk of lead-on-lead and lead-on-can abrasion in multi-lead systems3
  • Offers flexibility and lubricity for improved handling3



SAFE

Safer 6-French design features a thing profile pacing lead designed for flexibility and ease of handling for a safer and easier venous introduction.4

Thin, 6F Profile Design:

  • Improves venous passage and accommodates additional leads within a single vessel
  • Reduces the risk of rib or clavicle crush and venous thrombosis
  • Affords more options for lead access in a small cephalic vein

Thin Lead Profile 

Thin lead body for safer and easier venous introduction. Ease implantation with the small diameter lead, compatible with a 6F introducer.

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

Soft silicone tip allows for more compliance at the lead-endocardium interface and enhances implant safety.

  • Four raised pads on the silicone tip increase the heart tissue and lead contact surface area
  • Increase in lead tip surface area of 35% over 6F leads without a soft silicone tip
  • Unique soft silicone tip technology that can reduce lead tip pressure by 30%

Implantable Cardiac Device Product Performance Reports

Part of our commitment to quality is keeping medical professionals and their patients informed about how well our devices work. We release two reports a year detailing overall performance and reliability of our implantable cardiac devices and leads.


References

*No miminum length of time requirement between implant and MRI scan. Stability of pacing capture thresholds is required prior to MRI scan.
