Skin pressure symptoms can occur in thin patients with pacemakers, with erosion through the skin surface a possibility. To correct this problem without device removal, two patients had nonantigenic preserved human dermis grafts placed over their pacemakers. This acellular nonantigenic human dermal substitute provided significant thickness over the devices and improvement in pressure symptoms.
