Abstract

An implantable medical device (198, 199, 209, 219, 229, 239) for implantation in the head of a patient. The implantable medical device has a plurality of interconnected modules (200, 202, 206, 212, 214, 216, 222, 224, 226, 232, 234, 236, 242, 244, 246) one or more of which are covered by an overmold (204, 210, 220, 230, 240) and one or more of which are partially covered by the overmold. The module(s) covered by the overmold may be implanted between the cranium and scalp, while the module(s) partially covered by the overmold may be placed at least partially into a recess in the cranium.

Claims

25AMENDED CLAIMS[Received by the International Bureau on 16 July2004 (16.07.04); Original claims 1-23 replaced by amended claims 1-23]
1. An implantable medical device for implantation in the head of a patient comprising: a first module including a first module housing and first operative component within the first module housing; a second module including a second operative component; and a flexible overmold that covers the second module and partially covers the first module wherein the first module housing extends out of the overmold for receipt in a first recess in a cranium of a patient.
2. The implantable medical device of claim 1 , wherein the first module housing is substantially cylindrical.
3. The implantable medical device of claim 1 or 2, wherein the second operative component includes a recharge coil.
4. The implantable medical device of any one of claims 1 to 3, wherein the second module includes a second module housing containing the second operative component.
