The safety and efficacy of temporary pericardial pacing wires have been accepted and their use is common after cardiac operations. Complications related to pacing wire removal are unusual but it can be serious and even catastrophic. We report an unusual case of bleeding due the laceration and rent created in the saphenous vein graft wall by the metallic tip of the pacing wire at the time of pacing wire removal. Keywords: Cardiac surgery; Pacing wire removal; Bleeding; Tamponade.

Temporary epicardial pacing wire placement is a common procedure in cardiac surgery. However, it is difficult to perform in totally endoscopic cardiac surgery. We describe a simple new technique to pl...
Temporary pacemaker wires are placed in the majority of patients after cardiac surgery. There is no information on mechanical factors related to wire removal.
A 64-year-old patient underwent implantation of a transcatheter pacing systems (TPS) for severe lead endocarditis. The patient experienced fever after a dental procedure. On the transoesophageal echoc...
Although temporary transvenous pacing is life-saving in patients with myocardial infarction who develop bradyarrhythmias, the electrical complications resulting from it can be fatal and are rarely rep...
Migration of Kirschner wires (K-wires) postoperatively and with use of cannulated implants intraoperatively is a well-known complication. In this article, we present an extraordinary mechanism causing...
Hypothesis 1 (H1): Epicardial biventricular pacing is a safe and feasible method of pacing in young patients. Over the last two years, physicians at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta hav...
This study evaluates the usefulness of 3D echocardiography to guide pacemaker therapy in the operating room in cardiac surgical patients. Each patient will serve as his own control, follow...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a left ventricular rapid pacing using the valve delivery guide-wire in transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) reduces the overall ...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy of optimized temporary biventricular pacing (BiVP) in patients undergoing open-heart surgery with preoperative LV dysfunction and a...
Patients with reduced left ventricular function are at an increased perioperative risk and often need prolonged postoperative treatment on intensive care units. A significant portion of th...
A procedure to increase the flow of blood to the MYOCARDIUM by creating transmural channels in the heart wall via the application of laser pulses to epicardial or endocardial surfaces.
Moving oneself through space while confused or otherwise cognitively impaired. Patterns include akathisia, exhibiting neuroleptic-induced pacing and restlessness; exit seekers who are often newly admitted institution residents who try to open locked exit doors; self-stimulators who perform other activities such as turning doorknobs, in addition to continuous pacing; and modelers who shadow other pacers.
Diversion of the flow of blood from the pulmonary veins directly to the aorta, avoiding the left atrium and the left ventricle (Dorland, 27th ed). This is a temporary procedure usually performed to assist other surgical procedures.
Small metal or ceramic attachments used to fasten an arch wire. These attachments are soldered or welded to an orthodontic band or cemented directly onto the teeth. Bowles brackets, edgewise brackets, multiphase brackets, ribbon arch brackets, twin-wire brackets, and universal brackets are all types of orthodontic brackets.
Any procedure in which blood is withdrawn from a donor, a portion is separated and retained and the remainder is returned to the donor.
