Outcomes and predictors of difficulty with coronary sinus lead removal
Journal of Interventional Cardiac Electrophysiology , 05/25/2012
Sheldon S et al. – Percutaneous coronary sinus (CS) lead removal is successful by simple traction alone in the vast majority of cases. CS leads in place greater than 4 years, however, often require complex extraction. Specific extraction techniques can be implemented when simple traction is unsuccessful without an appreciable increase in complications.
