Other specified pacemaker or implantable cardioverter defibrillator lead complication can be caused by a variety of factors such as improper implantation, mechanical damage, or corrosion.
The diagnosis of this complication is usually made through imaging studies such as X-ray and CT scans, as well as electrical testing of the device.
Other possible causes of the symptoms associated with this complication must be considered, such as failure of the device, infection, or other mechanical problems.
Treatment of this complication may involve the removal and replacement of the lead, or adjustment or reprogramming of the device.
The prognosis for this complication is generally good, especially if the underlying cause is identified and treated early. However, if the device is not properly managed, long-term complications such as infection or mechanical failure can occur.
