Incidence of lead fracture for pacemaker recipients who row
I was wondering if anyone has found data on incidence of lead fracture for pacemaker recipeints who row. I just had a pacemaker implanted a week ago (subclavian placement) and my EP indicated returning to rowing would not be a problem. However, it seems like many professionals recommend against rowing.
I am a single sculler, and a typical practice schedule for me is 25k-30k, 6 days a week. I love rowing and hate the thought or reducing training volume or stopping, but I also want to be responsible and moderate any risk of lead fracture.
If anyone can share links to research or share personal experiences I would be very grateful.
Thanks in advance!
