Micra™ Transcatheter Pacing System delivery kit, enters through the femoral vein to gain access to the patient's heart, developed and manufactured by Medtronic Limited, 2018

Designed to carry, deliver, and position to the Micra™, this catheter is inserted into a person’s femoral vein in their leg. Guided by imaging techniques, an interventional cardiologist steers the device through a person’s veins until they reach the right ventricle of their heart. Here, the Micra™ is implanted directly into the heart to regulate heartbeats that are slower than normal. The procedure is usually carried out in a cardiac catherisation lab under a local anaesthetic.
