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 experience of having a couple of lengths of wire fed into your heart muscle and an electronic 'box' tucked under the skin is not an insignificant event, but you will survive.
