Vacuum-assisted debulking (VD) of large vegetations as an adjunct to percutaneous lead extraction provides an opportunity to mitigate the risks of massive embolism that may occur with percutaneous lead removal. VD can be performed as an adjunct to percutaneous lead extraction with a reasonable safety profile. The relative safety and efficacy of this approach removal requires further study.
