ABSTRACT Smaller leadless pacemakers placed in the right ventricle can reduce the risk of lead fracture or dislodgement and subcutaneous pocket complications, which can occur with traditional transvenous cardiac pacemakers. This article describes new leadless pacemakers and their indications.

At the time this article was written, Ashley Groner was a student in the PA program at Gannon University in Erie, Pa. She now practices in cardiac electrophysiology at Carilion Clinic in Roanoke, Va. Kristen Grippe is an assistant professor in the PA program at Gannon University. The authors have disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
