Upgrading to CRT-P
I'm new to the forum but have had an implant at 11, and I am now 36. Next week I am getting a whole new device after years of a low EF (45-50) due to 100% pacing from a dual chamber. I am curious if others have had this experience? I was told I it would be good at my age to get the CRT-P to improve my EF. Also, was told if my EF isn't improved it shouldn't worsen because of the new lead. I'm pretty confident this operation will go smooth but do the same risks and complications from any Pacemaker implant the same as a CRT-P device?
