Riata family of implantable cardioverter defibrillator leads have demonstrated in situ conductor externalization, prompting a class I recall and the Food and Drug Administration recommendation for fluoroscopic screening. The natural history of externalized Riata leads, however, remains unclear. In this study, we examined the rate of electrical failure in Riata leads with externalized cables. We reviewed medical and implantable cardioverter defibrillator records of all 329 patients with Riata… CONTINUE READING
