Cardiac Device Lead Extraction

Implanted cardiac pacemakers and cardioverter defibrillators have special wires, or leads. Scar tissue, infection or damage may affect the leads, creating the need to replace them.

Our heart surgeons have the specialized skills for evaluating, removing and replacing cardiac device leads, a procedure that is not performed at many hospitals. Using the best technology, our specialists determine when lead extraction is necessary and are highly experienced in performing the procedure.

The high quality and cost-efficiency of our heart services have earned Abington Hospital recognition as a Blue Distinction Center+ for Cardiac Care® by Independence Blue Cross.Blue Distinction Center+ for Cardiac Care
