Title (EN) IMPLANTABLE LEAD WITH AN ELECTROSTIMULATION CAPACITOR
(FR) DÉRIVATION IMPLANTABLE COMPRENANT UN CONDENSATEUR D'ÉLECTROSTIMULATION
Abstract:
(EN) One example includes an implantable lead with an elongate lead body including a proximal portion and a distal portion. The lead includes a coupler configured to be coupled to an implantable medical device, a conductor, extending through the coupler, a first electrode, and a first electrostimulation capacitor located at the distal portion of the lead body, the first electrostimulation capacitor including a capacitance value that is large enough to store an electrostimulation charge of an electrostimulation energy that is large enough to perform electrostimulation of tissue. The lead includes a first switch located at the distal portion of the lead body and coupled to the conductor, the first switch configured to selectively couple the first electrostimulation capacitor to the first electrode during a stimulating state and to selectively couple the first electrostimulation capacitor to the conductor during a charging state.
(FR) L'invention concerne une dérivation implantable ayant un corps de dérivation allongé comprenant une partie proximale et une partie distale. La dérivation comprend un coupleur configuré pour être couplé au dispositif médical implantable, un conducteur s'étendant à travers le coupleur, une première électrode, et un premier condensateur d'électrostimulation situé au niveau de la partie distale du corps de dérivation, le premier condensateur d'électrostimulation présentant une valeur de capacité électrique suffisamment grande pour stocker une charge d'électrostimulation d'une énergie d'électrostimulation suffisamment grande pour mettre en œuvre l'électrostimulation d'un tissu. La dérivation comprend un premier commutateur situé au niveau de la partie distale du corps de dérivation et couplé au conducteur, le premier commutateur étant configuré pour coupler de manière sélective le premier condensateur d'électrostimulation à la première électrode pendant un état de stimulation et pour coupler de manière sélective le premier condensateur d'électrostimulation au conducteur pendant un état de charge.
