Postcardiac injury syndrome (PCIS) is an inflammatory complication that derives from injury to the epicardium, myocardium, or endocardium. It occurs after trauma, myocardial infarction, percutaneous coronary intervention, cardiac surgery, intracardiac ablation, and implantation of cardiac implantable electronic device (CIED). In this study we assessed the incidence of PCIS after CIED implantation and its possible risk factors.
