- •Leadless pacemaker systems have significantly reduced or eliminated many of the complications associated with traditional transvenous systems.
- •The presence of large bore femoral venous catheters such as those used in extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) cannulation should not preclude implantation of a leadless pacemaker.
- •This case demonstrates a safe and effective implantation of a leadless pacemaker in the setting of V-V ECMO cannulation.
