Abstract

In most series, infection is the most common indication for pacemaker and implantable cardioverter-defibrillator extraction. Meticulous operative technique and early attention to potential problems can reduce, but not eliminate, the risk of infection. In the next part of this review, we discuss the various indications for extraction that are not related to infection and how best to minimize the occurrence of such indications.
