People who have surgically implanted pacemakers, implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICDs), biventricular devices, and heart rhythm monitors require management of these cardiac devices. The technology for managing heart rhythm disorders is constantly evolving, and our team of world-renowned specialists—including cardiac electrophysiology device management experts, heart surgeons, and cardiologists—at NYU Langone’s Heart Rhythm Center offer comprehensive ongoing and episodic care.
Our experts are pioneers in lead management, which includes both extraction and the replacement of damaged or failed wires called leads, which send electrical signals from some types of cardiac devices to the heart. Our doctors are also experienced in managing the newest and most advanced cardiac device technology, which includes leadless pacemakers and devices such as loop recorders, pulmonary artery sensors, and left atrial appendage devices.
NYU Langone cardiac electrophysiologists monitor and manage pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators, and heart rhythm monitors called loop recorders during office visits and through remote monitoring systems. They extract faulty leads and replace devices as needed.
