Medtronic, Inc. has successfully implanted the world's smallest pacemaker into the heart of a human patient. The Micro Transcatheter Pacing System is one- tenth the size of a regular pacemaker, and is placed directly into the heart via a catheter inserted in the femoral vein. This novel pacemaker attaches directly to the wall of the heart and does not require any wiring to do so.
