Laser Lead Extraction
The Arrhythmia Institute is vastly experienced in removing malfunctioning or impacted leads quickly and safely without open surgery, using a minimally invasive procedure called laser lead extraction. Our physicians use laser lead extraction to vaporize scar tissue surrounding the malfunctioning or impacted lead, allowing it to be easily removed—a procedure far less likely to damage or tear the heart’s delicate lining or its blood vessels. Laser lead extraction is a catheter-based procedure that is much safer for the patient and has a very high success rate.
