Leadless Cardiac Pacemakers

A leadless pacemaker is used to treat patients experiencing irregular or slow heartbeat (bradycardia). Like other pacemakers, the leadless pacemaker sends electrical impulses to restore the heart’s rhythm and increase the heart rate. We offer the Medtronic Micra® Transcatheter Pacing System (TPS).
