  • Publication number: 20150051614
    Abstract: Implantable leadless pacing devices and medical device systems including an implantable leadless pacing device are disclosed. An example implantable leadless pacing device may include a pacing capsule. The pacing capsule may include a housing. The housing may have a proximal region and a distal region. A first electrode may be disposed along the distal region. An anchoring member may be coupled to the distal region. One or more anti-rotation members may be fixedly attached to the distal region.
    Type: Application

  • Publication number: 20150051609
    Abstract: A retrieval device and an associated implantable cardiac pacing device. The retrieval device includes a retrieval catheter and a snare advanceable from the distal end of the retrieval catheter. The snare has a loop configured to be coupled to the docking member to draw the implantable cardiac pacing device into the lumen of the retrieval catheter. The retrieval catheter includes a retention feature in the lumen configured to engage the head portion of the docking member to facilitate retention of the implantable cardiac pacing device in the lumen after drawing the implantable cardiac pacing device into the lumen of the retrieval catheter with the snare.

  • Publication number: 20150051615
    Abstract: Delivery devices, systems, and methods for delivering implantable leadless pacing devices are disclosed. An example delivery device may include a proximal section including a deflection mechanism for deflecting the proximal section, and a distal holding section extending distally of a distal end of the proximal section and defining a cavity therein for receiving an implantable leadless pacing device. The delivery device may include more than one deflection mechanism for deflecting the proximal section at multiple deflection regions. The delivery device may include more than one tubular member that are translatable relative to one another, and the one or more tubular members may include fixed curve portions. The delivery device may include an atraumatic or bumper tip at the distal end of the holding section.
