Abstract

A man with four endocardial pacemaker leads and two vegetations (1.5 cm and 1 cm) underwent successful percutaneous laser-assisted lead extraction. Although this procedure was complicated by embolization to a left pulmonary arterial branch, the patient recovered without sequelae. This article reviews the literature on lead extraction associated with large vegetations.
