Attain Performa and Vector Express Cardiac Device Features

Attain Performa Advanced Quadripolar Lead

Our Attain™ Performa™ Advanced Quadripolar Lead is part of our CRT device system, which allows you to personalize CRT. It offers:

  • 3 lead shapes for varying patient anatomies
  • Steroid on all electrodes to improve thresholds and longevity1
  • Short bipolar spacing to reduce phrenic nerve stimulation occurrence2,3

Provides clinically actionable data for all 16 vectors — in 2 minutes to4:

  • Select a pacing location
  • Maximize longevity
  • Optimize CRT response

The 2.0 version of our VectorExpress LV Automated Test optimizes CRT response with LV Electrical Delay:

  • RV Sense to LV Sense
  • RV Pace to LV Sense

  • Pacing from 2 LV electrodes provides another option for non-responders
  • Fully compatible with AdaptivCRT™, EffectivCRT™ Diagnostic, and EffectivCRT During AF
  • 5 new vectors added to allow for multiple point pacing
  • VectorExpress™ 2.0 displays longevity information for MPP vectors as well as single-site vectors
