Abstract

We have used a preperitoneal suprahepatic location for pacemaker generator placement in pediatric patients requiring permanent pacemakers with epicardial leads. The technique is rapid, simple, and safe, and cosmesis is excellent, making this approach particularly advantageous in the younger infant and neonate.
