Implanting the Model 5086 CapSureFix MRI™ Lead

General considerations for active leads fixation:

  • Do not direct drive lead with fully seated stylet into resistive cardiac structures
  • Number of pin connector rotations for helix extension can vary based on the lead path in the body
  • Expect more rotations in tortuous anatomy
  • Fluoscopy is the only reliable confirmation of helix extension
  • Do not give the lead body one turn post fixation

Helix extension

Consideration specific to 5086 (compared to other CapSureFix Novus® leads):

  • Handling of the Model 5086 lead is comparable to other Medtronic active fixation leads14 with some differences primarily in stiffness and torque transfer due to it's unique design15
  • The 5086 will require more pin connector rotations to extend the helix
  • On x-ray, radiopaque icon identifies a SureScan® lead
