Revo MRI SureScan Pacing System

Bradycardia (Slow Heart Rate)

Revo MRI™ SureScan® pacing system

Overview

The Revo MRI™ SureScan® pacing system is the first FDA approved pacing system designed for safe use in the MRI environment.

Key Features

SureScan® Technology
A pacemaker and lead with SureScan technology are specifically designed for safe use in the MRI environment, under certain conditions. Activating the SureScan mode before an MRI scan ensures patients safety in the MRI environment.

Rate Response
Automatically adjusts your heart rate to match your level of activity. Special sensors detect changes in your body other than heart rate and increase or decrease your heart rate accordingly.

Managed Ventricular Pacing® (MVP®)
Provides the best pacing therapy available to reduce unnecessary right ventricle pacing. MVP allows the heart to beat naturally on its own.

Cardiac Compass®
Provides the best pacing therapy available to reduce unnecessary right ventricle pacing. MVP allows the heart to beat naturally on its own.

Placement

Your doctor will make a small incision, usually in your upper chest, and guide the lead(s) through a vein, into your heart. The lead(s) are connected to your pacemaker, and the device is programmed for your medical needs.

Size

The device is not shown actual size. Other sizes may be available.

Height 1.77" (45 mm)
Width 2.01" (51 mm)
Depth 0.31" (8 mm)

Important Safety Information

An implantable pacemaker system relieves symptoms of heart rhythm disturbances. They do this by restoring normal heart rates. A normal heart rate provides your body with the proper amount of blood circulation. The pacemaker system is intended for patients who need rate-adaptive pacing or chronic pacing or for patients who may benefit from synchronizing the pumping of the heart chambers.

Risks associated with pacemaker system implant include, but are not limited to, infection at the surgical site and/or sensitivity to the device material, failure to deliver therapy when it is needed, or receiving extra therapy when it is not needed. After receiving an implantable pacemaker system, you will have limitations with magnetic and electromagnetic radiation, electric or gas-powered appliances, and tools with which you are allowed to be in contact. 

A complete Revo MRI™ SureScan® pacing system, including a Revo MRI SureScan pacemaker and two CapSureFix MRI™ SureScan leads is required for use in the MRI environment. Any other pacing system combination may result in a hazard to the patient during an MRI scan. When programmed to On, the MRI SureScan feature allows the patient to be safely scanned while the device continues to provide appropriate pacing. 


This treatment is prescribed by your physician. This treatment is not for everyone. Please talk to your doctor to see if it is right for you. Your physician should discuss all potential benefits and risks with you. Although many patients benefit from the use of this treatment, results may vary.

Safe by Design, not by Chance

Medtronic has spent more than 10 years conducting extensive research and rigorous testing to design a breakthrough pacing system that allows patients with a pacing system access to MRI scans, under specific conditions.

MRI: Imaging Procedure of Choice

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) allows doctors to see internal organs, blood vessels, muscles, joints, tumors, areas of infection and more, without X-rays or surgery, and without exposing patients to ionizing radiation. MRI is the standard of care in soft tissue imaging, providing information not seen with X-ray, ultrasound, or CT scan. MRI is therefore critical for the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of many diseases.

The Revo MRI SureScan pacing system is MR Conditional designed to allow patients to undergo MRI under the specified conditions for use. A complete system, consisting of a Medtronic Revo MRI SureScan IPG implanted with two CapSureFix MRI® SureScan leads is required for use in the MRI environment
