CIED lead extraction with excimer laser sheath
The troubled lead of CIED (Cardiac Implantable Electrical Device: ex. Pacemaker, Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator, and Cardiac Resynchronizing Device) often should be removed completed for saving patients’ life. The most important cause of lead trouble is infection around these devices. If the infectious materials are leave, it can be fatal for those patients.
In our hospital, we can provide for the solution for troubled lead because our hospital acquires the institutional authorization to the lead extraction procedure with excimer laser sheath.
