The purpose of the Advisa MRI System clinical study is to confirm safety and effectiveness in the clinical MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) environment when subjects receive MRI scans up to 2W/kg Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) without positioning restrictions (MRI scans may occur anywhere on the body including the chest).
The Advisa MRI IPG is a dual chamber, multi-programmable IPG. The IPG is indicated to restore heart rates, improve cardiac output, prevent symptoms, or protect against arrhythmias related to cardiac impulse formation or conduction disorders. The IPG is indicated for use in patients who may benefit from rate-responsive pacing to support cardiac output during varying levels of activity and has been modified for use during an MRI exam.
Subjects will have required follow-up visits after implant, at 2 months, 9-12 weeks, 3 months, 4 months, 6 months and every 6 months thereafter until the study ends. The MR scans will occur at the 9-12 weeks visit.

This study investigates the performance of an iteration of the Medtronic hybrid closed-loop (HCL) algorithm, which utilizes sensor glucose values non-adjunctively for bolus advice, recognizes sustaine...
Deep brain stimulation for Parkinson's disease (PD) utilises an implantable pulse generator (IPG) whose finite lifespan in non-rechargeable systems necessitates their periodic replacement. We wish to ...
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 o...
Today there is no manufacturer-supplied retrieval tool for the Micra™ pacemaker (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN USA), therefore off-the-shelf catheters have been employed for retrievals. The proximal re...
A non-heme iron-sulfur protein isolated from Clostridium pasteurianum and other bacteria. It is a component of NITROGENASE along with molybdoferredoxin and is active in nitrogen fixation.
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.
A non-heme iron-sulfur protein isolated from Clostridium pasteurianum and other bacteria. It is a component of NITROGENASE, which is active in nitrogen fixation, and consists of two subunits with molecular weights of 59.5 kDa and 50.7 kDa, respectively.
Poisoning that results from chronic or acute ingestion, injection, inhalation, or skin absorption of LEAD or lead compounds.
Unstable isotopes of lead that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. Pb atoms with atomic weights 194-203, 205, and 209-214 are radioactive lead isotopes.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
