I had my 4th pacemaker battery change on March 12th. I
have a dual chamber and now my atrial lead stopped working. I have complete heart block due to two previous ablations.They tell me that changeing out the lead is high-risk. I could get a tear in an artery or they could dislodge the other lead[which would leave me with no heartbeat]. Has anyone else had an extraction lately. I'd like to know how theres went. For some reason this isn't outpatient like a battery change, Why?
