QUOTED. May 24, 2018. John Mandrola.
Single-center data presented at the Heart Rhythm Society annual meeting in Boston raised questions about failure rates for Abbott Laboratories's Tendril pacemaker leads. See what Baptist Health electrophysiologist John Mandrola said about it here.
This was a retrospective single-center study with nonrandomized group comparisons. It has serious limitations and is not yet published. That said, it's hard to dismiss an 18-fold greater risk for lead failure as spurious." – John Mandrola, electrophysiologist, Bapist Health (Louisville, Ky, US)
