Title (EN) SYSTEM FOR CARDIAC LEAD WITH VARYING STIFFNESS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ POUR CONDUCTEUR CARDIAQUE
Abstract:
(EN) An implantable medical device (IMD) can include implantable pulse generator (IPG) devices, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD), cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator devices, neurostimulators or combinations thereof. In one example, the IMD can include a body assembly, which can provide at least one electrical signal corresponding to a therapy. The IMD can also include a cardiac lead assembly, which can have a proximal portion and a distal portion. The proximal portion of the cardiac lead assembly can be in communication with the body assembly to receive the therapy and the distal portion can be adapted to be coupled to an anatomical structure to transmit the at least one electrical signal to the anatomical structure. The proximal portion of the cardiac lead assembly can have a first stiffness and the distal portion can have a second stiffness. The first stiffness can be greater than the second stiffness.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un dispositif médical implantable (IMD) pouvant comprendre des dispositifs implantables générateurs d'impulsions (IPG), des défibrillateurs-cardiovecteurs implantables (ICD), des dispositifs défibrillateurs de thérapie par resynchronisation cardiaque, des neurostimulateurs ou des combinaisons de ceux-ci. Dans un exemple, l'IMD peut comprendre un ensemble corps, qui peut fournir au moins un signal électrique correspondant à une thérapie. L'IMD peut également comprendre un ensemble raccord cardiaque, pouvant comporter une partie proximale et une partie distale. La partie proximale de l'ensemble raccord cardiaque peut être en communication avec l'ensemble corps afin de recevoir la thérapie et la partie distale peut être apte à se coupler à une structure anatomique pour transmettre l'au moins un signal électrique à la structure anatomique. La partie proximale de l'ensemble raccord cardiaque peut avoir une première rigidité et la partie distale peut avoir une seconde rigidité. La première rigidité peut être supérieure à la seconde rigidité.
