Pacemaker and Defibrillator Implantation


Pacemaker and Defibrillator Implantation

Pacemaker and Defibrillator ImplantationMore than three million people worldwide with persistent or intermittent slow or irregular heart rate have had a pacemaker or defibrillator implantation procedure. They include patients with bradycardia, atrial fibrillation, syncope (fainting) and congestive heart failure, in addition to those who use these devices as medical therapy. 

Electrophysiologists at Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute implant pacemakers and defibrillators to regulate, monitor and initiate the heart’s rhythm and the speed and pattern of the heartbeat. Cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators emit a series of pulses to regulate the heart's rhythm and can even send life-saving shocks in the event of dangerous arrhythmias. These procedures are performed under x-ray guidance with small incisions that do not require entry into the patient’s chest.

Laser lead extractions

This approach avoids the need for open-heart surgery to remove these devices, with only a small incision over the pacemaker or defibrillator site, and reduces the risks of the surgery.

Pacemaker clinic

At Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute at Morristown Medical, we offer an outpatient pacemaker clinic where you can get cardiac implantable devices checked and monitored.
