INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Currently, studies on the leadless pacemaker (Micra) have mostly been limited to clinical trials with less than 6 months' follow-up and they often fail to reflect real population outcomes. We sought to evaluate electrical parameters at implantation and chronologically during follow-up, as well as the safety of this new technique. METHODS: This prospective, observational study included 30 consecutive patients, all ≥ 65 years, with an indication for single-chamber pacemaker implantation...

AIMS: Pre- and post-evaluations of implantable cardiac devices require innovative and critical testing in all phases of the design process. The Visible Heart(®) Project was successfully launched in 1997 and 3 years later the Atlas of Human Cardiac Anatomy website was online. The Visible Heart(®) methodologies and Atlas website can be used to better understand human cardiac anatomy, disease states and/or to improve cardiac device design throughout the development process. METHODS AND RESULTS: To date, Visible(®) Heart methodologies have been used to reanimate 75 human hearts, all considered non-viable for transplantation...

BACKGROUND: Leadless cardiac pacemakers have emerged as a safe and effective alternative to conventional transvenous single-chamber ventricular pacemakers. Herein, we report a multicenter experience on the feasibility and safety of acute retrieval (<6 weeks) and chronic retrieval (>6 weeks) of the leadless cardiac pacemaker in humans. METHODS AND RESULTS: This study included patients enrolled in 3 multicenter trials, who received a leadless cardiac pacemaker implant and who subsequently underwent a device removal attempt...

INTRODUCTION: Two leadless pacemaker (PM) systems were recently developed to avoid pocket- and lead-related complications. As leadless PMs are implanted with a large delivery catheter, cardiac perforation remains a major safety concern. We aimed to provide a literature review on incidence of cardiac perforation with conventional and with leadless PM systems. METHODS AND RESULTS: A systematic review over the last 25 years for studies reporting data on PM lead perforation was performed...

Leadless pacing is an emerging technology with the potential to significantly improve outcomes associated with the need for long-term pacing. Specifically, the major advantage of leadless systems is abolishing the need for transvenous leads and subcutaneous pockets, both of which account for most adverse events associated with traditional pacemakers. Two leadless pacemakers are currently available: the Nanostim (leadless cardiac pacemaker [LCP]) device (St. Jude Medical, Sylmar, California) and the Micra Transcatheter pacing system (Medtronic, Minneapolis, Minnesota)...

Erich L Kiehl, Daniel J Cantillon
Over the last 50 years, the use of transvenous pacemakers has been constrained by long-term complications that affect more than 1 in 10 patients, largely attributable to the endovascular leads and surgical pocket. Leadless cardiac pacing involves a self-contained pacemaker deployed directly into the heart without a lead or incisional access. The procedure has shown promise, eliminating pocket-related complications. Other advantages include postprocedural shoulder mobility and the ability to drive, shower, and bathe...

INTRODUCTION: A lack of information about the feasibility and safety of leadless pacemaker (LPMs) exists in a fragile population of patients with limited venous anatomy access or conventional pacemaker (PM) contraindication. Accordingly, the goal of this prospective observational study was to report our experience with this new leadless technology in a subset of patients with contraindication or limited venous access. METHODS AND RESULTS: Between May 2015 and July 2016, 14 patients were consecutively included...

Advances in the field of defibrillation have brought to practice different types of devices that include the transvenous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) with or without cardiac resynchronization therapy, the subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD), and the wearable cardioverter-defibrillator. To ensure optimal use of these devices and to achieve best patient outcomes, clinicians need to understand how these devices work, learn the characteristics of patients who qualify them for one type of device versus another, and recognize the remaining gaps in knowledge surrounding these devices...

AIMS: Continuous rhythm monitoring is valuable for adequate atrial fibrillation (AF) management in the clinical setting. Subcutaneous leadless implantable cardiac monitors (ICMs) yield an improved AF detection, overcoming the intrinsic limitations of the currently available external recording systems, thus resulting in a more accurate patient treatment. The study purpose was to assess the detection performance of a novel three-vector ICM device equipped with a dedicated AF algorithm. METHODS AND RESULTS: Sixty-six patients (86...

BACKGROUND: Worldwide, more than 700,000 pacemakers are implanted annually with more than 250,000 implanted in the United States. Since the first fully transvenous pacemaker implantations in the early 1960s, great technologic advances have been made in pacing systems. However, the combination of subcutaneous pulse generators and transvenous pacing leads has remained constant for more than 50 years. Leadless pacing systems offer an alternative to traditional pacing systems by eliminating the need for permanent transvenous leads while providing therapy for patients with bradyarrhythmias...

Two major studies have shown that leadless pacemakers are safe and effective for patients requiring right ventricular rate responsive pacing therapy. This positive result recently led to FDA approval of one of the available leadless pacing devices. While this new technology is promising, it requires a different skill set for safe implantation. In this article, we review in detail the different steps required for implantation of tine-based leadless pacemakers while providing tips and tricks to minimize complications...
