Leadless pacemaker for right ventricle pacing (Update 2020)

Semlitsch T, Loder C
Record ID 32018000621
Authors' objectives: Pacemakers are meant to stabilise the heart rhythm and thus restore effective circulation and normal haemodynamics. In the course of an update, Medtronic's leadless pacemaker Micra™ Transcatheter Pacing System (TPS) was re-evaluated.
Authors' results and conclusions: The evidence for the evaluation of efficacy (compared to conventional pacemakers) was again considered insufficient, but with regard to safety the Micra™ TPS seems to have certain advantages.
Authors' methods: A total of 16 new relevant documents (on 2,976 individuals) could be included on three ongoing prospective multicentre single arm studies, one multicenter case-control study and five additional small monocentre case series.
