There are several other techniques for placement of the LV lead inside the sharply-angulated/tortuous coronary veins.
The Corox OTW S-BP offers a unique, threaded silicone fixation mechanism that allows the lead to attach itself in even very narrow or very short coronary veins, the most problematic vessels for conventional leads,
The lead features an "over-the-wire" design that enables implantation using either a guidewire or stylet in the coronary veins overlying the left ventricle of the heart.
