Cardiac Device Lead Extraction
Special wires, or leads, provide the energy for implanted cardiac pacemakers and cardioverter defibrillators. Sometimes, these leads need to be replaced due to scar tissue, infection, or damage.
Cardiac device lead extractions demand specialized skill. The procedure is not performed at many hospitals. Pilla Heart Center surgeons are expert at these lead extractions. Using the best technology, our specialists are able to determine when lead removal and replacement is needed and perform the procedure skillfully.
