I went to my ep yesterday and during the appt he discussed the RV lead in my icd/pm. The voltage was 1.4. He ran some tests using the device computer and my voltage jumped all over the place. He called the Medtronic rep and spoke to him, as he had already left fthe office for the day (I was the last person of the day with a device). We went on to other things. His office called me about 5 and said they need to Schedule a NIPS procedure.
Has anybody had voltage issues with their leads? Has anybody had NIPS procedure?
My RV lead is just over 4 years old. My RA lead is about 5 1/2 years old. I've probably been shocked 20 times with appropriate therapy.
I am paced 99.9% in the RA (SSS) and 99.8% in RV. I have 8-12 months remaining on my ICD.
