MRI conditional pacing system with MRI tested leads.1 Always one step ahead.

A pacing system known for small size, longevity, and high performance.
KORA-100-DR_MicroPort_2018

Featuring

AutoMRI

Making MRI scans easy and safe for pacemaker patients.1

Featuring

SafeR™

Designed to promote intrinsic conduction in patients who need dual-chamber pacing.

Featuring

SAM

Sleep Apnea Monitoring measures respiration pauses and reduction in respiration.

Featuring

Dual Sensor

Designed to physiologically modulate heart rhythm by combining Accelerometer and Minute Ventilation sensors.

Kora 100 provides the first MRI mode that automatically detects an MRI magnetic field – another innovative solution in a pacing system known for small size, longevity, and high performance.

12 years longevity in only 8 cc.

The world’s smallest dual-chamber pacemaker with no compromise on longevity.2–4

 

 
 

Built on proven technology

Kora 100 is built on the heritage of Sorin pacemaker technology: the Reply platform. The Reply pacemaker platform has been proven in practice.5

Reply pacemakers:

  • 99.96% cumulative survival 6 years after implantation

Beflex leads:

  •  99.94% cumulative survival 5 years after implantation

Kora 100 is built on the Reply platform.

Powered by intelligent algorithms.

AutoMRI

  • Less time, more flexibility1
  • Making MRI scans easy and safe for pacemaker patients1
  • Automatic switch to initial configuration
  • No post-MRI visit needed
 

SafeR™

  • Advanced AV management for increased protection6,8–14
  • Reduces RV pacing in SND and AVB patients6
  • Manages ALL types of AV blocks at rest and at exercise2,6
  • Adds 2 YEARS of device longevity13,14
  • Unique AV block diagnosis
 

Sleep Apnea Monitoring

  • Early detection, long-term risk reduction2,7,15–19
  • Reliable screening to detect severe Sleep Apnea with high specificity (85%) and high sensitivity (89%)7
  • Correlated with gold standard Apnea–Hypopnea Index*7
