Abstract

Aims Fracture in transvenous pacing leads is one of the most common reasons for lead abandonment. Although the factors affecting lead failure rates have been investigated, there is no study evaluating the clinical parameters that affect lead fracture in children. We report our experience with lead fracture in children with transvenous pacemakers.
