Abstract

Cardiac rhythm management device (CRMD) infection is rare, but potentially life-threatening complication. Despite technical evolution of cardiac device, the cases of CRMD infection have increased remarkably over the past decades. In this review, several important key points were discussed with regards to the epidemiology, pathogenesis, risk factors, microbiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of CRMD infection.
