The DEXTRUS pacing lead is an extendable-retractable, active fixation lead designed to provide a larger electrically-active surface area for enhanced threshold performance. The lead features a familiar feel with durable and predictable helix extension-retraction performance and an inner coil designed for predictable torque response. The DEXTRUS lead is designed for an easy lead implant experience with mapping capability, a radiopaque helix and tip extension indicator and a flexible tip designed for flexible placement options within the right atrium and right ventricle.
Nov. 2, 2017 - International Neuromodulation Society members Simon Thomson, MBBS, and Timothy Deer, MD, were quoted in an article about the presentation of research results from Dr. Thomson's PROCO (Evaluation of Spinal Cord Stimulation Pulse Rate On Clinical Outcomes) clinical trial at the INS 13th World Congress in June 2017. Results of the double-blind, crossover study in 20 pain patients showed equivalent pain relief using spinal cord stimulation frequencies from 1 kHz to 10 kHz. Commentators called for additional, expanded study, and Dr. Deer pointed out neurostimulation can lower the need for opioid medication. (Pain Medicine News)
