Limitations of Conventional Temporary Pacing Leads
Conventional temporary pacing leads can cause serious complications such as cardiac perforation and valve embolization. In addition, loss of pace capture due to lead instability prevents patient mobilization, delaying post-procedural ambulation and physical rehabilitation.
Cardiac perforation and/or tamponade**
The Tempo Lead Advantages
The Tempo Lead's unique design delivers safe, secure pacing and allows patients to ambulate sooner after procedures.
In over 12,000 US Tempo Lead placements there have been only five reported cardiac perforations****
