Three-year clinical experience with a new endocardial screw-in lead with introduction protection for use in the atrium and ventricle.

Abstract

There is still a high incidence of dislodgement, threshold rises, and loss of sensing with permanent transvenous endocardial leads. Atrial leads are an even greater problem and require particularly reliable methods of fixation. In March, 1976 we reported our preliminary results from animal experiments using a new transvenous screw-in lead with introduction… (More)
