  • Patent number: 10821290
    Abstract: A cable assembly for a patient treatment system comprises an electrical cable having a proximal connector configured to connect to an external electrical stimulator device and a distal connector including a distal housing having an open distal end. The distal housing houses a manifold that supports a plurality of spring-loaded electrical contact assemblies aligned in two rows and being electrically connected to a corresponding one of a plurality of electrical contacts in the proximal connector. The housing distal open end is closed by a header that is movable between a closed position resting on the housing open end and an open position spaced there above. The header has a pair of side-by-side longitudinally extending openings. With the header in the open position, a practitioner holds the distal connector in one hand and with the other hand inserts the distal electrical contacts of one or two therapy delivery devices into the longitudinally extending openings.

  • Publication number: 20190388696
    Abstract: A device that is implantable in body tissue of a human or animal. The device is comprised of a header comprising at least one terminal adapted for removable connection to a lead and an open ended case closed by a plate to form a housing. The housing is comprised of a surrounding edge wall joined to a first side wall and a second side wall opposed to the first side wall. At least a first suture port extends through the edge wall and the second side wall but not the first side wall at an upper edge region of the housing. A second suture port may extend through the surrounding edge wall and the second side wall but not the first side wall in a similar manner. A third suture port may extend through the header. The three suture ports may define a triangular attachment configuration.
