Temporary Myocardial Pacing Leads
 

Leads

The Streamline® family is the gold standard in temporary sensing and pacing leads.

Summary

Generations of Innovation

Medtronic presents the Streamline® family of temporary sensing and pacing leads. Our engineers have taken the gold standard in temporary pacing leads and improved upon the features that make them easy to use and less traumatic to heart tissue.

The Streamline family from Medtronic is designed for temporary pacing and sensing during and after cardiac surgery. The Medtronic Streamline family includes models that offer consistent unipolar atrial and ventricular pacing, pediatric unipolar pacing, and now, the bipolar pacing lead.

All Medtronic temporary pacing leads are compatible with Medtronic external pulse generators. Integrating more than 50 years of scientific and technological pacing expertise into our temporary pacing leads, Streamline is the lead you can trust.

Pediatric 6491

Unipolar Pediatric Temporary Pacing Lead

The Model 6491 Unipolar Pediatric Temporary Pacing Lead is designed for temporary atrial and ventricular sensing and pacing during and after cardiac surgery. This temporary pacing lead has been downsized, making it the ideal lead for pediatric patients or small hearts.

Features include:

  • Smaller fixation coil well suited for thinner pediatric tissue
  • Curved chest needle for greater leverage through small chest cavity
  • Discrete electrode for consistent sensing and pacing
  • Connector pin sleeves insulate connector pins while not in use

Important Safety Information

The possibility of dislodgement, lead fractures, threshold elevation and sensing inconsistency exists. Other potential complications include, but are not limited to, myocardial irritability, septicaernia and myocardial infections, myocardial bleeding and damage, especially during removal of the pacing lead(s).

Atrial 6492

Unipolar Temporary Atrial Pacing Lead

Smaller and thinner than our standard temporary pacing leads, the following features of the Model 6492 Unipolar Temporary Atrial Pacing Lead make this lead well suited for thin, delicate, atrial tissue.

  • Smaller fixation coil well suited for thinner atrial tissue
  • Discrete electrode for consistent sensing and pacing
  • Straight breakaway chest needle diameter reduced from 1.00 mm to 0.86 mm minimizes trauma during lead insertion
  • Connector pin sleeves insulate connector pins while not in use

Important Safety Information

The possibility of dislodgement, lead fractures, threshold elevation and sensing inconsistency exists. Other potential complications include, but are not limited to, myocardial irritability, septicaernia and myocardial infections, myocardial bleeding and damage, especially during removal of the pacing lead(s).

Convenience 6494

Unipolar Temporary Myocardial Pacing Wire

The Convenience wire is a temporary pacing wire designed for either atrial or ventricular sensing and pacing.

Some improvements feature:

  • Conductive wire length extended from 50 mm to 70 mm
  • Curved myocardial needle diameter reduced from 0.55 mm to 0.43 mm to minimize trauma during heart wire insertion
  • Chest needle diameter reduced from 1.00 mm to 0.86 mm to minimize perforation
  • Color-coded leads come conveniently packaged, two per sleeve
  • Connector pin sleeves insulate connector pins while not in use

Important Safety Information

The possibility of dislodgement, wire fractures, threshold elevation, and sensing inconsistency exists. Other potential complications include, but are not limited to, myocardial irritability, septicaernia and myocardial infections, myocardial bleeding and damage, especially during removal of the pacing lead(s).

Bipolar Coaxial 6495

Bipolar Temporary Myocardial Pacing Lead

The Medtronic Model 6495 Bipolar Coaxial Temporary Pacing Lead is designed to provide the advantages of bipolar technology based on the sensing and pacing capabilities of the Medtronic Model 6500 Unipolar Temporary Pacing Lead.

  • Features coaxial lead body for excellent electrical performance
  • Curved myocardial needle is slimmer – reduced from 0.66 mm to 0.61 mm to minimize tissue perforation
  • Two discrete electrodes are optimally spaced for consistent pacing and sensing
  • Proximal electrode is swaged for smoother transition through tissue
  • Relaxed fixation coil minimizes tissue trauma while securely positioning electrode
  • Connector pin sleeves insulate connector pins while not in use

Important Safety Information

The possibility of dislodgement, lead fractures, threshold elevation and sensing inconsistency exists. Other potential complications include, but are not limited to, myocardial irritability, septicaernia and myocardial infections, myocardial bleeding and damage, especially during removal of the pacing lead(s).

Premium 6500

Unipolar Temporary Myocardial Pacing Lead

  • Relaxed fixation coil minimizes trauma during pacing lead insertion
  • Diameter of the curved myocardial needle has been reduced from 0.66 mm to 0.61 mm to minimize tissue perforation
  • Discrete electrode for consistent sensing and pacing
  • Easy-to-use breakaway chest needle has been reduced in diameter from 1.00 mm to 0.86 mm to minimize perforation
  • Silastic fixation disc for atrial placement
  • Connector pin sleeves insulate connector pins while not in use

Important Safety Information

The possibility of dislodgement, lead fractures, threshold elevation and sensing inconsistency exists. Other potential complications include, but are not limited to, myocardial irritability, septicaernia and myocardial infections, myocardial bleeding and damage, especially during removal of the pacing lead(s).
