Patent Issued for Silicone Molded Co-Polymer Composite Lead Body

The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: “Implantable medical devices such as pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are important, life-saving technologies. When the body’s own heart pacing mechanisms fail or degrade over time, life-threatening conditions such as arrhythmias and congestive heart failure may arise. Implantable medical devices monitor the electrical activity of the heart that occur with the heart contractions which pump blood. These devices further provide appropriate electrical stimulation when the heart’s own pacing mechanisms function improperly or when the heart exhibits some form of arrhythmia such as cardioversion or defibrillation.”
