There are more than 7 million pacemakers and implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICDs) implanted worldwide, 700,000 new devices implanted each year and 1.5 million new leads implanted annually. These devices and the leads that connect them to the heart need ongoing management and maintenance. Sometimes this includes removal or replacement of the leads. Leads may need to be removed for a variety of reasons, including lead damage, lead or device infection, or manufacturer advisory. Spectranetics is dedicated to safely managing every lead and providing state-of-the-art tools to ensure safe and precise removal.
