  • Publication number: 20210038900
    Abstract: Setscrews for implantable medical devices include multiple drive features. The drive features may include a first or primary drive feature (such as a hex socket) and a second drive feature that can be engaged independently from the first drive feature such that the second drive feature may be used to extract the setscrew in the event the first drive feature is damaged or obstructed. The second drive feature may extend laterally and/or longitudinally beyond the first drive feature. Examples of second drive features include, without limitation, slots, sockets, extensions/protrusions, and counter-threaded bores. Spacers for use with implantable devices including elastomeric septums are further provided to prevent damage to the septum and obstruction of the primary drive feature during backing out of the setscrew.

  • Patent number: 10682519
    Abstract: A pulse generator comprises a header connector assembly coupled with a housing. The header connector assembly includes a connector assembly and a header enclosing the connector assembly. The connector assembly includes an electrically insulative segment, a first electrically conductive segment, and a second electrically conductive segment axially spaced apart from the first electrically conductive segment by the electrically insulative segment. Each electrically conductive segment includes a connector ring, a spring housing and a spring supported by the spring housing. The connector ring and spring housing are in electrical communication with each other. The electrically insulative segment includes an insulator ring that is positioned between the first and second electrically conductive segments. The insulator ring includes a first end and a second end axially opposite the first end.

  • Publication number: 20200129763
    Abstract: A biostimulator, such as a leadless cardiac pacemaker, including an electrical feedthrough assembly mounted on a housing, is described. An electronics compartment of the housing can contain an electronics assembly to generate a pacing impulse, and the electrical feedthrough assembly can include an electrode tip to deliver the pacing impulse to a target tissue. A monolithically formed electrode body can have a pin integrated with a cup. The pin can be electrically connected to the electronics assembly, and the cup can be electrically connected to the electrode tip. Accordingly, the biostimulator can transmit the pacing impulse through the monolithic pin and cup to the target tissue. The cup can hold a filler having a therapeutic agent for delivery to the target tissue and may include retention elements for maintaining the filler at a predetermined location within the cup.

  • Publication number: 20190275340
    Abstract: A leadless biostimulator including an attachment feature to facilitate precise manipulation during delivery or retrieval is described. The attachment feature can be monolithically formed from a rigid material, and includes a base, a button, and a stem interconnecting the base to the button. The stem is a single post having a transverse profile extending around a central axis. The transverse profile can be annular and can surround the central axis. The leadless biostimulator includes a battery assembly having a cell can that includes an end boss. A tether recess in the end boss is axially aligned with a face port in the button to receive tethers of a delivery or retrieval system through an inner lumen of the stem. The attachment feature can be mounted on and welded to the cell can at a thickened transition region around the end boss. Other embodiments are also described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 9610454
    Abstract: In accordance with one embodiment, a leadless implantable medical device (LIMD), compromises a hermetic housing that has a distal portion and proximal portion. An electrode is proximate to the distal portion. An electronics package is disposed in the housing, in which the electronics package is configured to generate and deliver stimulation signals to the electrode. A fixation mechanism is disposed on the distal portion of the housing. A torque mechanism is disposed on the proximal portion of the housing. The torque mechanism has a tool engagement element movably coupled to the housing. The tool engagement element has a rotational force applied thereto during implant. The torque mechanism includes a torque limiter that maintains a fixed relation between the tool engagement element and the housing when in an engaged state. The torque limiter changes from the engaged state to a disengaged state when the rotational force exceeds a predetermined torque limit.
