Although the sutureless myocardial pacemaker lead has proved a useful advance, the introducer supplied with it has had the disadvantages of requiring bimanual operation, creating forces directed toward the myocardium, and producing release of the lead head in a rotating motion. An improved introducer, described here, has overcome these problems and has further simplified the application of this useful device.
