Description

SynchroMed II Drug Infusion Pump

Intrathecal Baclofen Therapy with Lioresal Intrathecal (baclofen injection)

The Medtronic SynchroMed™ II pump is part of the SynchroMed II programmable drug infusion system which provides precise drug delivery for chronic therapy for severe spasticity. In addition to the implanted pump, the SynchroMed II infusion system uses a catheter to deliver programmed amounts of Lioresal® Intrathecal (baclofen injection) (a muscle relaxant and antispasticity agent) directly to the intrathecal space and cerebrospinal fluid. The pump and catheter are implanted under the skin.
