    The miniaturized Micra™ transcatheter pacing system (TPS) is the world’s smallest pacemaker,1 delivered percutaneously via a minimally invasive approach, directly into the right ventricle and does not require the use of leads.

    99.2% implant success rate, 0 dislodgements, 0 systemic infections in 725-patient global trial2
    48% fewer major complications than traditional pacemakers3
