Abstract

In order to avoid dislocation, of pacemaker electrodes transvenously introduced into the heart, said electrodes are frequently provided with a corkscrew tip to be screwed into the wall of the heart. The screwing-in process is effected for example, by turning a mandrin. If this mandrin is already appropriately bent during insertion for the purpose of achieving arches, turning it results in a lateral shearing force on the head. In order to counter this undesirable effect the invention provides an electrode and the screwing-in process thus takes place by turning the electrode itself about a preferably bent mandrin, so that the mandrin determining the site of placement does not have to be moved during the screwing-in process.
