Functional description

Sentus OTW UP H is unipolar passive fixation in a left ventricular coronary vessel by unfolding a

pre-shaped helix and contains dexamethasone acetate. It is guided into the target vein using either the

OTW technique or a stylet. A seal at the lead tip prevents blood from penetrating the inner lumen of the

lead. Pacing is performed through a tip electrode; the contact surface has a fractal iridium coating. The

silicone insulation is coated improving gliding properties

Intended purpose

Sentus OTW UP H lead is a permanent, transvenous implantation in the coronary venous system via the

coronary sinus. It is component of an integrated system for long-term cardiac pacing, together with a

BIOTRONIK implantable triple-chamber pacemaker or ICD as part of cardiac resynchronization therapy
