This live continuing medical education symposium – to be held as a satellite in conjunction with the 2016 Heart Rhythm Society Annual Scientific Sessions – will address two very important aspects of the management of Cardiac Implantable Electronic Devices (CIED): lead revisions and extraction and the prevention and management of infected CIED systems. The program will include lectures and expert panel discussions that cover the above important topics.

- Describe the pathophysiology of CIED infection and its relation to management implications
- Summarize the current classifications and recommendations for infection and lead revisions
- Describe the decision making related to the approach and timing of re-implantation
