Transvenous lead extraction after heart transplantation: How to avoid abandoned lead fragments.

07:00 EST 13th February 2020 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Transvenous lead extraction after heart transplantation: How to avoid abandoned lead fragments."

Many patients awaiting heart transplantation (HTX) have a cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED). Lead removal is often still a part of the HTX procedure. Abandoned lead fragments carry a risk for infections and prohibit MRI imaging. This study evaluated the concept of an elective lead management algorithm after HTX.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The transference of a heart from one human or animal to another.

Use of various chemical separation and extraction methods, such as SOLID PHASE EXTRACTION; CHROMATOGRAPHY; and SUPERCRITICAL FLUID EXTRACTION; to prepare samples for analytical measurement of components.

INFLAMMATION of the sac surrounding the heart (PERICARDIUM) due to MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS infection. Pericarditis can lead to swelling (PERICARDIAL EFFUSION), compression of the heart (CARDIAC TAMPONADE), and preventing normal beating of the heart.

The simultaneous, or near simultaneous, transference of heart and lungs from one human or animal to another.

Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.
