Abstract

Integrity of the electrical circuit is a necessary requirement for appropriate heart/wrapped skeletal muscle interaction to be achieved in cardiomyoplasty. This article describes the management of two different complications after a cardiomyoplasty procedure involving the electrical system (infection of the abdominal cardiomyostimulator pocket and intramuscular lead fracture). Minimal approaches were carried out, which ensured the successful treatment of the infective and of the mechanical insult, and represent useful strategy for solving such uncommon problems.
