Extraction of pacing leads jailed by a stent in a mustard circulation

Pacing and Clinical Electrophysiology : PACE
Anoop K ShettyPier D Lambiase


A case of successful lead extraction of atrial and ventricular pacing leads "jailed" by a stent in the superior limb of a Mustard baffle in a 40-year-old man with surgically corrected transposition of the great arteries and pacemaker pocket infection. Manual traction alone was sufficient to remove the jailed leads with no subsequent complications.

Atrial Filbrillation

Atrial fibrillation refers to the abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating of the atria. Here is the latest research.


Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
