Micra Transcatheter Pacing System for
Bradyarrhythmia Management

The miniaturized Micra™ transcatheter pacing system (TPS) is the world’s smallest pacemaker,1 delivered percutaneously via a minimally invasive approach, directly into the right ventricle and does not require the use of leads.

Product Details

Micra Pacing Capsule

  • 93% smaller than conventional pacemakers4
  • Ultra low-power circuit design delivers an estimated average 12-year battery longevity.2,5
  • MRI SureScan™ technology allows the patient to be safely scanned using either a 1.5T or 3T full body MRI.2
Proximal retrieval feature callout
Anode and cathode callouts

FlexFix™ Nitinol Tines

  • Provide atraumatic and secure device placement
  • Two tines have 15 times the holding force necessary to hold the device in place7
  • Design minimizes tissue trauma during deployment, repositioning, and retrieval8
  • Optimal electrode tissue interface allows for low and stable chronic thresholds9

Micra Delivery Catheter

  • 105-cm-long catheter system with a handle that controls deflection and deployment of the Micra pacing capsule

  

Catheter system with callouts
  • Delivery catheter provides visual feedback when adequate tip pressure has been achieved and retracts during deployment.6

Device Life-Cycle Management

Device life-cycle management options are designed to provide clinicians with options to manage their Micra patients.

  • Micra can be turned OFF at the end of service and additional device (transcatheter or transvenous) can be added.
  • The Micra design also incorporates a proximal retrieval feature to enable acute retrieval.
