Micra Transcatheter Pacing System

MICRA TRANSCATHETER PACING SYSTEM

Meet Micra

Micra™ Transcatheter Pacing System (TPS) is the world’s smallest pacemaker,1 delivered percutaneously via a minimally invasive approach, directly into the right ventricle without the use of leads.

Miniaturized, 93% smaller than conventional pacemakers2
Designed to eliminate pocket- and lead-related complications3 
FDA approved for 1.5T or 3T MRI scans4
Resulted in 99.2% implant success rate, 0 dislodgements, 0 systemic infections in 725-patient global trial4
Reduced complications by 51% versus traditional pacemakers4
INNOVATIVE DESIGN

Miniaturized

93% smaller than conventional pacemakers2
Completely self-contained within the heart, no leads required
Sophisticated

Integrated delivery system facilitates a streamlined implant procedure via a percutaneous, femoral approach
Atraumatic FlexFix™ nitinol tines provide secure capsule placement5
Complete

New ultra low-power circuit design delivers an estimated average 12-year battery longevity6
MRI SureScan® allowing safe MRI scans using either 1.5T or 3T full-body MRI
Accelerometer-based rate response
CareLink® 2090 Programmer compatible; no accessories required
Complete Capture Management™
ADVANTAGES OF MICRA

Redefines the patient experience

Potential to increase pacemaker patient satisfaction
No chest scar, bump, and no visible or physical reminder
Minimally-invasive procedure
Potential for fewer post-implant activity restrictions
Eliminates pocket-related complications 3

Infection
Hematoma
Erosion
Pocket-related complications with traditional systems: 8% at 5 years.

Eliminates lead-related complications 3

Fractures
Insulation breaches
Venous thrombosis and obstruction
Tricuspid regurgitation
Long-term, lead-related complications: 11% at 5 years.

Zero dislodgements with FlexFix nitinol tines 4

Provides atraumatic and secure device placement
Two tines have 15 times the holding force necessary to hold the device in place6
Designed to minimize tissue trauma during deployment, repositioning, and retrieval5
Optimal electrode tissue interface allows for low and stable chronic thresholds 2
MR-Conditional

MRI SureScan® allowing safe MRI scans using either 1.5T or 3T full-body MRI
