The teaching objectives of this book will guide the reader to:

  • Plan a lead extraction procedure based on the individual case.
  • Review detailed technical aspects of a lead extraction procedure.
  • Troubleshoot challenging and complex cases.
  • Develop strategies to prevent, diagnose, and manage complications associated with lead extraction procedures.

Also included is a special section on team dynamics and the valuable role of allied health providers in lead extraction procedures.

The ability to learn from the collective wisdom of the lead extraction community is a game-changer…This compendium showcases a breadth of techniques and expertise that extends far beyond what any individual could achieve. From the Foreword, Joshua M. Cooper, MD
