Electrocautery and pacemaker
I just did a search on this site on the subject above. Response was there are “no matches” on this site.
Has anyone had personal experience with a pacemaker and use of electrosurgery during a surgical procedure ? I’d like to know
1.) Did you have to get a device check beforehand ?
2.) What was done to your PM during the surgery, if anything.
3.) My surgeon said my cardiologist/EP would be asked to clear me in advance and possibly be present in the operating room.
Also I’m not pacemaker dependent, but pacing about 25% of the time at last check. Surgery will be in the abdominal area.
