|Description|| The new 4351 Intramuscular Lead is a unipolar lead intended for use with an implantable neurostimulator. The 4351 lead has a ski needle design for easier use with laparoscopic procedures. It is also designed with a fixed electrode length of 1 cm. The 4351 lead connects directly to the neurostimulator and is available in 35 cm length. Two leads are used in each patient.
Enterra™ Therapy is indicated for the treatment of chronic nausea and vomiting associated with gastroparesis when conventional drug therapies are not providing adequate relief of symptons for diabetic or idiopathic patients.
Gastroparesis is a stomach disorder in which food moves through the stomach more slowly than normal. In some patients, this condition results in severe, chronic nausea and vomiting that cannot be adequately controlled by available drugs. These patients have difficulty maintaining their nutricial needs, and may require some form of tube feeding to ensure adequate nutrition.
Enterra Therapy uses mild electrical pulses to stimulate the stomach. This electrical stimulation may reduce the symptoms associated with gastroparesis including nausea and vomiting.
