Abstract

Evolution RL sheath with its bidirectional rotational mechanism is an effective and safe technique for transvenous lead extraction of chronically implanted leads. However, data about powered mechanical sheath through jugular vein are lacking. Our report suggest that bidirectional rotational mechanical sheath may represent an effective and safe approach for removal of chronically implanted jugular lead.
