What is a Pacemaker or ICD Lead extraction ?

Overview: A Pacemaker or Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator consists of the device placed under the skin and one or more leads connecting it to the heart. A lead is a device that measures the passage of electrical signals. Leads are used in electrocardiograms to record the electrical activity of the heart. Leads are also used with pacemakers or Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator devices (ICDs) to detect abnormal beating of the heart, and to deliver electrical impulses to the heart, in order to correct the abnormal heartbeat, or rhythm. The most common reason why a pacemaker or defibrillator leads needs to be removed is bacterial infection, either on the lead itself or around the pacemaker or defibrillator. The infection may be also associated with erosion of the pacemaker or defibrillator through the skin.
