Steroid elution improves the stimulation threshold in an active-fixation atrial permanent pacing lead. A randomized, controlled study. Model 4068 Investigators.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Prior work suggests that the addition of a steroid-eluting reservoir to a passive-fixation permanent pacemaker lead improves the stimulation threshold; however, no large randomized study has addressed this tissue. Over the last several years, there has been an increase in enthusiasm for the use of active-fixation permanent pacemaker leads for… (More)
