NEW clinical evidence for ONS treatment

Further clinical evidence of intractable Chronic Cluster Headache (iCCH) patients receiving Occipital Nerve Stimulation (ONS) therapy has been released, confirming that ONS is a promising treatment that may reduce attacks frequency and intensity on these suffering patients1.

ANKERSTIM™: THE ONLY LEAD SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO REDUCE ONS COMMON COMPLICATIONS*

The AnkerStimTM lead is designed to resist migration and improve comfort.

ANKERSTIM: AN INNOVATIVE LEAD DESIGNED TO REDUCE COMMON COMPLICATIONS
  • Lead tip features a dual-prong tine for lead fixation in the subcutaneous layer. Two additional single-prong tines provide extra fixation between the two proximal electrodes. These tines are designed to resist migration and avoid the use of anchors in the occipital area that were a source of discomfort at the implant site.
  • Flexible spring-coil electrodes adjust to the shape of the skull and are designed to improve comfort at the device site and lower the risk of skin erosion.
  • 14G curved introducer needle adjusts to the curvature of the skull to help facilitate lead implant.
  • 60 cm lead length allows for two strain relief loops along the lead trajectory intended to further resist lead dislodgement.
