Abstract

Lead extraction, a demanding task:
Every year approximately 1 0 000–15 000 pacemakerand
ICD-leads are extracted worldwide with numbers
continuing to rise. The increasing need for lead extractions
may be explained by the evolution of pacemakerand
ICD-implants during the last decade as well as by
the widened spectrum of extraction devices and techniques.
Last but not least, in 2009 the indications for
transvenous lead extractions were broadened by the
Heart Rhythm Society.
Lead extraction are not simple operations at all,
but instead can be very challenging with a recognisable
risk profile. When carried out by specialised centres
lead extractions may be performed with high success
rates (>95%), and low complication rates (<2%) and
mortality (<0.5%).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
