Image Guided Therapy Devices

    Cardiac lead extraction. Managing leads. Together.

     

    Patients rely on you to provide guidance about device management, including when lead extraction may be indicated. When physicians and extractors work together to provide information and options, you can be confident that the patients you refer for extraction can expect a safe, successful procedure, supported by Philips - *your partner in providing advanced devices and training.

    Managing leads.

    Partnering for patient care.

     

    Collaboration with colleagues is key to optimal patient care, along with knowing the Heart Rhythm Society Expert Consensus Statement on Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Device Lead Management and Extraction1. Together, you can make the right decision at the right time for every patient.

    This symposium provides insights on how a lead extraction program could be shaped today. It specifically shows how to be successful in a challenging case, using up-to-date tools in the right setting. It also looks at how to provide a safety net for optimal patient outcome and how to strengthen the necessary networking with referring hospitals and physicians.

    Lead extraction.

    Life saving.

     

    More than 6 in 10 patients suffering from cardiac device infections go untreated or undertreated.3

     

    All leading cardiac societies agree that safe, cost-effective and life-saving treatment for such an infection is complete removal of the device, including leads. Any patient with an implanted cardiac device and a suspected infection should be screened immediately for device infection.

     

    Philips is dedicated to helping you recognize and treat implanted cardiac device infections by providing expert tools, training and support that help you save lives and vastly improve the quality of life for your patients.

    29% out of 433 patients with cardiac device infection have not been treated according to the current guidelines.

    Lead extraction vs. Antibiotic treatment: New study looks at outcome for patients


    Data from the Multicenter Electrophysiologic Device Infection Collaboration, a prospective, observational, multinational cohort study of CIED infection, were used to investigate whether clinical predictors of successful salvage of infected devices could be identified.
    PI James E. Peacock MD summarizes: device explantation should remain a mandatory and early management intervention in patients with CIED infection in keeping with existing expert guidelines
