Acute stroke from paradoxical embolism of dense fibrous tissue following pacemaker lead extraction: salvation by mechanical thrombectomy

Published inClinical Case Reports, vol. 4, no. 2, p. 158-161

Abstract

Systemic embolization is a dreaded complication of transvenous lead extraction (TLE), even without visible vegetations. Preoperative patent foramen ovale evaluation is important, justifying neurological surveillance or consideration of surgical extraction in selected cases. In case of stroke after TLE, mechanical thrombectomy is a successful therapy, and should be readily available.
