The Micra Transcatheter Pacing System (TPS) is a single-chamber right ventricular (RV) pacing device with an estimated battery life of 7 to 15 years.The Micra TPS is self-contained and does not require a surgical incision in the chest or intravascular leads. It is inserted via a catheter placed in the femoral vein and held in place within the right ventricle of the heart via tines that attach into the tissue; the device can be repositioned if necessary. The Micra TPS is intended for patients who require single-chamber RV pacemakers, a subset comprising approximately 15% to 20% of U.S. patients who require a pacemaker.
