Abstract

Web-based survey was conducted for experiences of cardiac implantable electrical device (CIED) infection and migration in Japan. A total of 155 cardiologists’ answer was collected in January, 2018. CIED includes pacemaker (PM), implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemaker (CRT-P), and cardiac resynchronization therapy ICD (CRT-D) and total of 10,499 CIEDs’ experiences of within previous twelve months were reported. CIED includes pacemaker (PM), implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemaker (CRT-P), and cardiac resynchronization therapy ICD (CRT-D.). The infection rate of PM, ICD, CRT-P, and CRT-D was 0.79%, 0.81%, 0.45%, and 2.0%, respectively, and the device migration rate was 0.68%, 0.64%, 0.45%, and 0.93%, respectively. The overall infection rate was 0.85% and migration rate was 0.68%.
