BACKGROUND There is a scarcity of cardiac tissue available for research. OBJECTIVE (1) To investigate the feasibility of obtaining myocardial tissue from extracted pacemaker and defibrillator leads for gene expression analysis and (2) to examine the nitric oxide 1 adaptor protein (NOS1AP) RNA expression as a function of patient genotype.
