Lead wrapped around heart
Hi there. I had my ICD fitted in January 2019 to replace my old pacemaker after it was discovered that I’d had changing symptoms. What a nightmare it has been. I was admitted back into hospital in March 2019 after having a heart rate over 190 on a couple of occasions, without my new ICD registering this. One of the things that worried me during this recent was the news that since the surgeon had trouble attaching the leads during my initial implantation, due to my strange heart anatomy, they had decided to “wrap the lead around” my heart instead. This was quite startling to me, and I wonder if anyone else has heard of this procedure, as it has left me feeling unsure of the whole thing.
Thanks to all
