The objective was to review the clinical presentation and outcome in patients affected with CIED infections with either local pocket or systemic presentation.DESIGN: All device removals due to CIED infection during the period from 2005 to 2012 were retrospectively reviewed. CIED infections were categorized as systemic or pocket infections. Treatment included complete removal of the device, followed by antibiotic treatment of six weeks.RESULTS: Seventy-one device removals due to infection (32 systemic and 39 pocket infections) were recorded during the study period.
