WASHINGTON, DC — New research reveals that abandoning a nonfunctioning lead in an ICD patient is safe and does not pose a clinically significant risk of complication. The lead is the wire placed in the heart that transmits the heart's electrical signals to the defibrillator for interpretation. The new study published in the January edition of the HeartRhythm Journal, the official journal of the Heart Rhythm Society, suggests that the practice of abandoning nonfunctioning leads does not result in additional risk to the patient and lead extraction should be reserved for cases of system infection or when large numbers of leads have been abandoned.
This case-based review will provide guidance and understanding of managing EP patients.
