Porous electrodes were designed and implanted to optimize sensing and pacing performance of the cardiac pacemaker. These electrodes were manufactured to create an effective, atraumatic endocardial interface in order to (1) decrease chronic stimulation thresholds and pacemaker current drain; (2) facilitate fibrous protein tissue ingrowth for reduced electrode displacement; and (3) to create a large electrolytic surface area of contact for reduced polarization voltage, thus improving impulse and… CONTINUE READING
