Summary of "Usefulness of a lead delivery system consisting of a fixed-shaped sheath and a lumenless bipolar lead in a patient with absent right and persistent left superior vena cava: A case report."

We report the case of an 84-year-old female with symptomatic bradycardia due to a complete atrioventricular block, who carried absent right and persistent left superior vena cava (SVC). Implantation of a pacing lead, particularly within the right ventricle (RV) in a patient with this venous anomaly is accompanied by technical difficulties. However, the apparatus consisting of a fixed-curve sheath (Model C315-S10, Medtronic, Inc., Minneapolis, MN, USA) and a lumenless fixed-screw pacing lead (Model 3830, Medtronic), allowed a rapid delivery into the RV without any complications. By rotating the Model C315-S10 sheath in the counterclockwise direction in the right atrium, its tip faced the tricuspid orifice, advanced across the tricuspid valve and confronted the RV lower septum near the apex. Then the RV-lead was fixed with acceptable pacing and sensing parameters. Utilizing a lumenless pacing lead and a preformed sheath to deliver it is a novel approach that could be helpful in pacemaker implantation in patients with absent right and persistent left SVC.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Injury to the nervous system secondary to exposure to lead compounds. Two distinct clinical patterns occur in children (LEAD POISONING, NERVOUS SYSTEM, CHILDHOOD) and adults (LEAD POISONING, NERVOUS SYSTEM, ADULT). In children, lead poisoning typically produces an encephalopathy. In adults, exposure to toxic levels of lead is associated with a peripheral neuropathy.

The lipid-rich sheath surrounding AXONS in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. The myelin sheath is an electrical insulator and allows faster and more energetically efficient conduction of impulses. The sheath is formed by the cell membranes of glial cells (SCHWANN CELLS in the peripheral and OLIGODENDROGLIA in the central nervous system). Deterioration of the sheath in DEMYELINATING DISEASES is a serious clinical problem.

Neoplasms which arise from nerve sheaths formed by SCHWANN CELLS in the PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM or by OLIGODENDROCYTES in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors, NEUROFIBROMA, and NEURILEMMOMA are relatively common tumors in this category.

A group of gram-negative bacteria consisting of rod- and coccus-shaped cells. They are both aerobic (able to grow under an air atmosphere) and microaerophilic (grow better in low concentrations of oxygen) under nitrogen-fixing conditions but, when supplied with a source of fixed nitrogen, they grow as aerobes.

Neurologic disorders occurring in children following lead exposure. The most frequent manifestation of childhood lead toxicity is an encephalopathy associated with chronic ingestion of lead that usually presents between the ages of 1 and 3 years. Clinical manifestations include behavioral changes followed by lethargy; CONVULSIONS; HALLUCINATIONS; DELIRIUM; ATAXIA; and vomiting. Elevated intracranial pressure (HYPERTENSION, INTRACRANIAL) and CEREBRAL EDEMA may occur. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1210-2)
