How Lead Extraction Has Led One Man to a Life of Zero Restrictions

Coming from a big sports family, Carl had always wanted to be an athlete. His dad played a couple years in the NFL, but as a child Carl was unable to play football. His medical condition was diagnosed when he was 14 months old and he was told he would eventually need a pacemaker due to his extremely slow heart rate. Carl received his first pacemaker at age 24 and has since experienced fractured leads that, at the time, were unable to be removed.  After seeing Dr. Manyam, Carl has had all fractured leads replaced. He is now completely MRI safe, and has avoided the long-term risks of lead abandonment.
