UAB is the first facility in Alabama to implant the Nanostim™ leadless pacemaker, the world’s first retrievable, non-surgical pacing technology. The device to treat bradycardia — a heart rate that is too slow — is placed directly in a patient’s heart without the visible lump, scar and insulated wires (called leads) required for conventional pacemakers.
