The expected implant lifetime of pacemaker generators has been extended with the introduction of lithium power sources. Consequently, the pacing lead may become the component that determines the total implant lifetime of the pacemaker. This fact emphasizes the necessity for accurate assessment of the integrity of a chronically implanted lead. In this study… CONTINUE READING
