Management of a possibly infected cardiovascular implantable electronic device system CID system

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Infection of a CIED is not always immediately obvious. Differential diagnosis in the early post procedural time includes pocket hematoma, and it may be difficult to determine whether an intervention is needed. Several options are discussed to assist in making the decision. Once infection is diagnosed, it is critical that early system removal with lead extraction be performed. Delay in definitive treatment is associated with longer and more expensive hospital stays, as well as higher morbidity and mortality.
