Schmiady, Martin Oliver; Hofmann, Michael; Maisano, Francesco; Morjan, Mohammed (2020). Do all roads lead to Rome? Treatment of malposition pacemaker lead in the left ventricle. European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, 57(5):1009-1010.

Abstract

Malpositioning of a pacemaker lead in the left ventricle is a rare device-related complication, which can lead to serious complications. Herein, we describe the case of a malpositioned lead, which entered the left ventricle via a direct transcutaneous puncture of the left common carotid artery.
