Perspectives in interventional electrophysiology in children and those with congenital heart disease: electrophysiology in children
Heart, Lung, and Circulation, 06/21/2012
Pflaumer A et al. – Pacing in young children and congenital heart disease often warrants an epicardial approach to avoid embolism, venous occlusion and lead failure related to growth. Defibrillator and resynchronisation therapy are increasingly important tools to reduce mortality, although the indications are not as clear as in adult patients without congenital heart disease.
