Apparatus for manufacturing an endocardial defibrillation lead with multi-lumen lead body and method



Apparatus for manufacturing an endocardial defibrillation lead with multi-lumen lead body and method



Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1243(4), Feb 27



An implantable endocardial defibrillation lead having an elongated lead body with multiple lumens therein. Windows, cut through the lead body, provide access to selected ones of the lumens at selected locations along the lead body. In addition, a method and an apparatus for forming windows in a multilumen lead body are disclosed. A ferromagnetic stylet is inserted into a selected lumen. The lead body is oriented in a jig by application of an electromagnetic field. A grinder or punch cuts a window into the selected lumen.
