Making a small cut over the tip with a small blade may help the final push. The conical metal tip is grabbed with a pair of artery forceps and the 37 handle rotated to separate it from the tip. After removing the metal rod of the tunneling device, the transparent plastic tube is left behind. The connector pins of the electrode lead are inserted one after another into the tube so that they sit firmly, and then the tube is removed downwards towards the chest incision. This leaves the electrodes under the skin with the ends in the axillary and neck wounds.
