St. Jude Directional Leads

Recommended Posts

Are patients who had or going to have medtronic leads now at a significant disadvantage now that they have come up with directional leads? i.e - in terms of surgical risks of implantation and avoidance of stimulation induced side effects?

No, there is no evidence that patients getting Medtronic leads are at any disadvantage to St. Jude.  St. Jude leads will need more testing and studies.
