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.
