This hands-on approach to cardiac lead extraction is presented in a case-based format and complemented by more than 200 videos demonstrating state-of-the-art tools, methodology, technical skills, and periprocedural clinical management critical for successful outcomes.

 There is a worldwide increase in extraction procedures due to pacemaker or defibrillator leads becoming infected or dysfunctional. This visual atlas with 26 illustrative cases informs cardiology providers about the latest techniques and tools available for the procedure. The teaching objectives of this book will guide the reader to:

·      Plan a lead extraction procedure based on the individual case.

·      Review detailed technical aspects of a lead extraction procedure.

·      Troubleshoot challenging and complex cases.

·      Develop strategies to prevent, diagnose, and manage complications associated with lead extraction procedures.

The book will serve as an easy reference guide for cardiac electrophysiologists, cardiologists, anesthesiology providers, allied health staff members, fellows, and surgeons performing lead extraction procedures. Also included is a special section on team dynamics and the valuable role of allied health providers in lead extraction procedures.

The ability to learn from the collective wisdom of the lead extraction community is a game-changer…This compendium showcases a breadth of techniques and expertise that extends far beyond what any individual could achieve.        From the Foreword, Joshua M. Cooper, MD
