Abstract

Leadless pacemakers have an accepted role with demonstrable benefit in adults. In contrast, implant and follow-up experience in pediatric patients is quite limited. We present our implant experience in a 4-year-old for treatment of high-grade AV block. Implant considerations in small patients and follow-up assessment of the vessel used for implantation are discussed.
