Title
(EN) IMPLANTABLE MEDICAL DEVICE CONNECTOR
(FR) CONNECTEUR POUR DISPOSITIF MÉDICAL IMPLANTABLE
Abstract
(EN)
Disclosed is an implantable medical device including a connector block that allows varied lead configurations to be used with a single connector block and implantable medical device assembly. The connector block is configured with one or more lead insertion lumens that are open at both ends, such that each end of the lead insertion lumen may receive a separate lead. The circuitry within the implantable medical device is configured to allow the delivery of electrical pulses from a pulse generator within the implantable medical device to two separate leads inserted within opposite ends of a single lead insertion lumen.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un dispositif médical implantable comprenant un bloc connecteur permettant d'utiliser des configurations principales variées avec un bloc connecteur unique et un ensemble de dispositif médical implantable. Le bloc connecteur est configuré avec une ou plusieurs lumières d'introduction de fil ouvertes aux deux extrémités, de telle sorte que chaque extrémité de la lumière d'introduction de fil peut recevoir un fil séparé. Les circuits à l'intérieur du dispositif médical implantable sont configurés de façon à permettre la délivrance d'impulsions électriques provenant d'un générateur d'impulsion du dispositif médical implantable aux deux fils séparés introduits à l'intérieur des extrémités opposées de la lumière unique d'introduction de fils.
