What is the smallest spinal cord stimulator?
Intellis™ Neurostimulator Intellis™ is the world’s smallest implantable neurostimulator.
Is Medtronic SCS MRI compatible?
The good news is that patients with a Medtronic neurostimulation system for chronic pain may have an MRI scan when proper safeguards† are in place. Both the Intellis™ and Vanta™ SCS devices integrate SureScan™ MRI technology, providing MRI access anywhere in the body with normal operating mode power settings.
Can you have a spinal cord stimulator if you have a pacemaker?
We suggest that with modern pacemakers it is safe to implant a spinal cord stimulator simultaneously with a pacemaker provided adequate precautions are taken to prevent interdevice interference.
Can I get an MRI if I have a spinal cord stimulator?
Advanced spinal cord stimulators like, HFX™ spinal cord stimulation, are designed so you can safely have a full-body MRI scan* allowing you to receive the care you need.
What are the different brands of spinal cord stimulators?
There are 4 Spinal Stimulator manufacturers available currently in the USA. All have their Pro’s and Con’s….Spinal Cord Stimulation
- Boston Scientific.
- St. Jude’s Medical.
Can you use a heating pad with a spinal cord stimulator?
Normal household equipment will not harm or interfere with the stimulator. This includes cellular or portable phones, microwaves, computers, TVs, appliances, electric blankets, and heating pads.
How often do spinal cord stimulators need to be replaced?
The lifespan of a spinal cord stimulator is more about the battery than the device itself. Those devices with non-rechargeable batteries generally need to be surgically replaced every two to five years. If you have a rechargeable device, the lifespan is ten years or more.
Does a spinal cord stimulator affect your heart?
Results. The mean heart rate and low frequency power were significantly lower when SCS was activated. HRV, absolute and normalized high frequency power significantly increased during SCS compared to without SCS.
What is the cost of a Medtronic spinal cord stimulator?
The newer models, which are manufactured by Boston Scientific Corp. and Medtronic, cost on average $19,000. Hospitals pay, on average, about $13,000 for the older models, which are still commonly used.
What is the success rate of a spinal cord stimulator?
Abstract. Objective: Presently, the long-term success rate of spinal cord stimulation (SCS) ranges from 47% to 74%. SCS efficacy is inversely proportional to the passage of time between development of chronic pain syndrome and time of implantation.
What are the side effects of a spine stimulator?
ADVERSE EVENTS May include: undesirable change in stimulation (uncomfortable, jolting or shocking); hematoma, epidural hemorrhage, paralysis, seroma, infection, erosion, device malfunction or migration, pain at implant site, loss of pain relief, and other surgical risks.
Which Medtronic pacemaker is right for You?
Medtronic offers many pacemaker options — please talk with your heart doctor to determine the best pacemaker option for your health situation. Micra™ is our smallest line of pacemakers — leaving no bump under the skin, no chest scar, and requiring no lead.
What is a 53401 pacemaker?
Model 53401 is a battery powered, external single chamber pacemaker for temporary use. It provides four common pacing modes including on-demand VVI/AAI (synchronous) and VOO/AOO (asynchronous) as well as burst functionality for managing atrial tachyarrhythmias.

What devices are used to manage atrial fibrillation (AF) in pacemaker patients?
These devices include exclusive algorithms to manage atrial fibrillation (AF) in pacemaker patients. Advisa™ MRI SureScan™ pacing systems are FDA approved for 1.5T and 3T full body MRI scans. Advisa DR is clinically proven to reduce the progression to permanent AF. Additionally, the Advisa SR is the latest addition to the SureScan family.
