The revolutionary intracardiac pacemaker

A first in Switzerland in early June: two men and a woman received a revolutionary pacemaker at the HUG, barely bigger than an almond and made with biocompatible materials. At 2.9 centimetres long and the thickness of a pen, it fits directly into the right ventricle.

Operating on tiny Swiss hearts

Created under the auspices of the Vaud-Geneva Association, the Swiss-French academic centre of paediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery is crucial to French-speaking Switzerland. It will allow for further expansion of this activity, in which Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) and the HUG have jointly developed a high level of expertise.
