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.

A sub-analysis of the ESC-EHRA European Lead Extraction ConTRolled (ELECTRa) Registry to evaluate the clinical impact of antithrombotic (AT) on transvenous lead extraction (TLE) safety and efficacy.
The feasibility and safety of lead extraction of cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) in the elderly Asian population remain uncertain. We report the outcome and safety of transvenous excime...
Female sex is considered an independent risk factor of transvenous leads extraction (TLE) procedure. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of TLE in women compared with men.
Rotating sheaths and laser sheaths are commonly used for transvenous lead extraction. This study aims to compare observed mortality between both approaches.
The number of lead extractions is growing due to a higher population and the increasing age of individuals with cardiac implantable electronic devices. Lead extraction procedures can be complex undert...
This prospective, multicenter, post-market clinical study was designed to evaluate the outcomes of lead extraction of cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIED) using Cook cathet...
The purpose of this study is to prospectively evaluate intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) imaging as a tool for grading the presence and characterization of intravascular lead adherence (ILA,...
Implanted cardiac devices are commonly used to treat a wide variety of heart diseases, including arrhythmias, cardiac resynchronization in select heart failure patients, and life threateni...
The study's main purpose is to evaluate the safety and performance of the LeadExx LC System and its ability to safely extract leads. The study will enroll 10 patients scheduled for CIED l...
The purpose of the study is to compare standard, single chamber transvenous ICD to sub-cutaneous ICD in occurrence of perioperative and long term device related complications and failed ap...
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.
