Superior Vena Cava Syndrome

Anyone out there have Complete Superior Vena Cava Obstruction due to Pacemaker leads?  I'm trying to decide whether to do nothing & live with the symptoms or try Angioplasty + Stent Placement.  Any advice would be helpful

If you do a search, we have had several members deal with this. They had various degrees of success with surery to fix it, from relief to ending up with epicardial leads.

The pacer systems are really very reliable. The main problem is the incompetent programming of them. If yours is working well for you, get on with life and enjoy it. You probably are more at risk of problems with a valve job than the pacer.
