Abstract

A method, based on well-established trauma principles, is described for surgical management of serious intrathoracic bleeding complications that can occur during the extraction of pacemaker or defibrillator leads. Using this method, four patients who experienced rapid hemodynamic deterioration due to traumatic injury of the superior vena cava and its tributaries during defibrillator lead extraction underwent successful surgical repair. Perioperative preparation for high-risk lead extractions, management of major bleeding complications, and surgical repair techniques are discussed. Major bleeding complications can be managed effectively with this strategy leading to excellent overall success rates for extractions without mortality. doi: 10.1111/jocs.12500 (J Card Surg 2015;30:149-153)
