What exactly is a tug test?

I'm in my 4th PM and while I've heard this term mentioned here, I'm not aware of ever having a tug test. What is it?

Since no one with more information about this has answered, the Tug Test is a test performed after a Micra pacemaker (trans venous, ventricular inserted pacemaker) is implanted to make sure it's well attached to the ventricular muscle.

I gathered that, but...

How do they do it and why is is done or not done. I've never had one.

My eight year old son had a pacemaker since he was 6 months old. He does very well, plays soccer, baseball, and rides his bike. I am so glad he is not ashamed of his pacemaker. He will proudly show his "battery" to anyone.
