The Tempo Lead Advantages

The incremental procedure cost to treat a cardiac perforation caused by cardiac lead placement can exceed $100,000*. The Tempo Lead’s unique design virtually eliminates perforation risk, provides secure and stable temporary pacing, and allows patients to ambulate sooner after procedures such as TAVR.

Proven Safe and Effective in a US Multi-Center Study

Results from a study of 269 patients from six US centers** confirm the Tempo Lead is safe and effective for temporary cardiac pacing, provides stable peri- and post-procedural pacing support, and facilitates post-procedure ambulation.

Active Fixation Mechanism

Small atraumatic stabilizer loops are deployed and retracted using the handle, providing secure fixation and maintaining stable pace capture.

Soft Distal Tip

Unlike the hard, rigid distal tip of a conventional lead that can cause myocardial perforation, the Tempo Lead's soft distal tip virtually eliminates perforation risk.

Asymmetric Elastomeric Balloon

The balloon may be inflated to aid passage of the lead through the venous vasculature and into the right ventricle, and aids in wall apposition during deployment of the stabilizers.
