Arrhythmias White Book contains first European data on lead extraction
Date:6/23/2013

Sophia Antipolis, 23 June 2013: The first European data on lead extraction was released today by the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). The information is published in the EHRA White Book 20131, launched at EHRA EUROPACE 2013 in Athens, Greece, during 23-26 June.

The EHRA White Book reports on the current status of arrhythmia treatments in the 55 ESC member countries2 and has been published every year since 2008. This year 46 countries took part.

For the first time this year data is provided on lead extractions. France reported the highest number of lead extractions (2,000) followed by Germany (800) and Poland (520). Several countries reported that no lead extractions had been performed (Iceland, Cyprus, Montenegro, Malta, Armenia).

Professor Fernando Arribas (Spain), EHRA White Book coordinator, said: "This is an area of increasing interest because device therapy has now been provided for many years. Device systems depend on the function of the leads which become sick as they get older and should be replaced. This is a growing problem because lead extraction has a significant morbidity and mortality all over the world."

Every country reports on general statistics to describe its demographics and healthcare system. The proportion of deaths resulting from CVD in 2012 were lowest in Israel (17%), Tunisia (23%), Morocco (23%), France (26%) and the Netherlands (28%) and highest in the Ukraine (65.8%), Bulgaria (63%), Serbia (56%) and the Russian Federation (55.5%).

Data is revealed on the use of cardiovascular implantable electronic devices including pacemakers (also called implantable pulse generators or IPGs), implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICDs), and cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) devices.

In 2012 pacemaker implantations were highest in Germany (106,567) and France (62,846) and lowest in Montenegro (143). Germany also had the highest numbers of
