Current practice in transvenous lead extraction: a European Heart Rhythm Association EP Network Survey


Bongiorni, Maria Grazia; Blomström Lundqvist, Carina; Kennergren, Charles; Dagres, Nikolaos; Pison, Laurent; Svendsen, Jesper Hastrup; Auricchio, Angelo (2012). Current practice in transvenous lead extraction: a European Heart Rhythm Association EP Network Survey. Europace, 14(6):783-786.

Abstract

AIM: Current practice with regard to transvenous lead extraction among European implanting centres was analysed by this survey.
METHODS AND RESULTS: Among all contacted centres, 164, from 30 countries, declared that they perform transvenous lead extraction and answered 58 questions with a compliance rate of 99.9%. Data from the survey show that there seems to be an overall increasing experience of managing various techniques of lead extraction and a widespread involvement of cardiac centres in this treatment. Results and complication rates seem comparable with those of main international registries.
CONCLUSION: This survey gives an interesting snapshot of lead extraction in Europe today and gives some clues for future research and prospective European registries.
