Description of Medical ServiceThe Micra Transcatheter Pacing System (TPS) is a type of leadless pacemaker, that is a single-chamber implantable transcatheter pacemaker inserted via the femoral vein and implanted directly into the right ventricular myocardium negating the need for transvenous wires.
Description of Medical ConditionBradycardia is defined as abnormally slow heart rhythm, as a consequence of the disturbance of the generation or conduction of cardiac electrical activity. Permanent pacing works by preventing the heart from beating slower than a predefined rate, by delivering an electrical stimulus to the myocardium when required.
