Abstract

Abstract: Conventional stylet-driven leads with extendable helix can be implanted successfully for Left Bundle Branch Area Pacing (LBBAP) with a low acute complication rate. However, removal and repositioning techniques of these leads haven’t been yet described. We report 2 cases in which lead repositioning after a first unsuccessful attempt to LBBAP was associated with fracture of the helix rotating mechanism and failure to fully extract the pacing lead.
