Executive Summary

A 10-year retrospective study from the Cleveland Clinic shows that implantable cardioverter defibrillator leads subject to recalls can be extracted with the same safety and efficacy as non-recalled ICD leads. Another study, published in the same issue of Heart Rhythm, found that younger age and female sex are independent predictors of failure for St. Jude’s Riata lead.
