CapSure Pacing Leads

CapSureFix

The SureScan Model 5076 is now MR Conditional and is safe for use in the MRI environment.

CapSureFix Novus MRI™ SureScan® Model 5076

MR Conditional, Screw-In Pacing Lead

The electrically active helix of the SureScan Model 5076 lead is designed to extend easily for active fixation and retract for venous passage. The SureScan Model 5076 has a shorter, 10mm tip-to-ring spacing.

CapSure Z Novus

Patented, 1.2 mm2 electrode increases impedance at the tip to efficiently deliver energy to the tissue. The leads have a thin lead body to accommodate small veins – with the same proven CapSure® efficiency.

The CapSure Z Novus is an endocardial, tined, high-efficiency lead. High efficiency combined with steroid elution allows safe, low output programming.

Steroid-Eluting, High-Efficiency Pacing Leads

  • CapSure Z Novus leads offer the same efficient energy delivery in a smaller size
  • Small electrode tip increases impedance at electrode-tissue interface to deliver energy most efficiently
