Since the first transvenous pacemaker implantation, that took place 50 years ago, important progress has been achieved in pacing technology. Consequently, today, more than 700,000 pacemakers are implanted annually worldwide. However, conventional pacemakers' implantation carries a non-negligible risk of periprocedural and long-term complications associated with the transvenous leads and pacemaker pocket. Recently, Leadless Pacing Systems have emerged as a therapeutic alternative to conventional pacing systems providing therapy for patients with bradyarrhythmias, while eliminating potential transvenous leads and pacemaker pocket related complications...

BACKGROUND: First-in-man studies of leadless pacemakers have demonstrated high implant success rates, and safety and efficacy objectives were achieved. Outside of the investigational setting, there are particular concerns over cardiac effusion/perforation, device dislodgement, infection, telemetry, and battery issues. OBJECTIVE: The acute performance of the Micra transcatheter pacemaker from a worldwide post-approval registry is reported. METHODS: The registry is an ongoing prospective single-arm observational study designed to assess the safety and effectiveness of Micra in the post-approval setting...

Atrial fibrillation (AF) is leading cardiac arrhythmia with important clinical implications. Its diagnosis is usually made on the basis on 12-lead ECG or 24-hour Holter monitoring. More and more clinical evidence supports diagnostic use of cardiac event recorders and cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIED). Treatment options in patients with atrial fibrillation are extensive and are based on chosen rhythm and/or rate control strategy. The use and selected contraindications to AF related pharmacotherapy, including anticoagulants are shown...

There have been many milestones in the evolution of cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) over the past few decades. Along with advancements in the field, new challenges have arisen. The ability to pace the right ventricular was the original breakthrough in the late 1950s, however adverse structural and clinical effects of long-term pacing induced dyssynchrony have recently become evident. Biventricular pacing has provided a viable option to help mitigate dyssynchrony, but has only proved to be beneficial for selective patients (primarily left bundle branch block and QRS duration ≥ 150 ms with depressed left ventricular (LV) function)...

BACKGROUND: Leadless pacemaker systems have been designed to avoid the need for a pocket and transvenous lead. However, delivery of this therapy requires a new catheter-based procedure. This study evaluates the role of operator experience and different training strategies on procedural outcomes. METHODS: A total of 726 patients underwent implant attempt with the Micra transcatheter pacing system (TPS) by 94 operators trained in a teaching laboratory using a simulator, cadaver, and large animal models (lab training) or locally at the hospital with simulator/demo model and proctorship (hospital training)...

Management of rhythm related issues might be particularly challenging in patients with congenital heart disease due to complex anatomy and restricted vascular access. The leadless technology appears a suitable and attractive alternative for this population. We describe a patient with single ventricle physiology who successfully underwent implantation of a leadless pacemaker.

REVIEW
Fleur V Y Tjong, Vivek Y Reddy
A new technology, leadless pacemaker therapy, was recently introduced clinically to address lead- and pocket-related complications in conventional transvenous pacemaker therapy. These leadless devices are self-contained right ventricular single-chamber pacemakers implanted by using a femoral percutaneous approach. In this review of available clinical data on leadless pacemakers, early results with leadless devices are compared with historical results with conventional single-chamber pacing. Both presently manufactured leadless pacemakers show similar complications, which are mostly related to the implant procedure: cardiac perforation, device dislocation, and femoral vascular access site complications...

The implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) has shown its superiority to anti-arrhythmic drugs in the prevention of sudden cardiac death. However, the conventional transvenous ICDs are still associated with substantial risks and comorbidities mainly related to the transvenous leads. The recent advent of an entirely sub-cutaneous ICD (S-ICD) represents an important progress in the defibrillation technology towards a less invasive approach. Clinical data are growing regarding the safety and efficacy of S-ICD in prevention of sudden cardiac death in selected patients without pacing indications...

Leadless pacemakers will most likely be the future of cardiac pacing. Leadless pacing employs a single-chamber system to pace only the right ventricle and is fully self-contained, which eliminates the need for leads. These systems, implanted by using a transcatheter sheath, are indicated for patients who need right ventricular pacing only. These devices enable patients to avoid lead-related complications, from lead fracture to extraction challenges, as well as pocket-related complications such as infection and disfigurement...

Cremation of implanted cardiac electronic devices can be associated with explosion from rapid gas formation causing potential hazard to the crematoria staffs and facilities. We present four patients who had undergone cremation with a leadless pacemaker (Micra(TM) , Medtronic Inc., MN) left inside their bodies. There was neither reported explosion nor damage to the cremation chamber during the cremation process. In this small series, cremation of Micra(TM) is not associated with noticeable explosion.
