We present a case of pacemaker artifact on 12-lead electrocardiogram that was initially interpreted as malfunction of the patient's dual-chamber cardiac pacemaker. It was ultimately determined to arise from an extracardiac gastric pacemaker, which had been inserted for refractory, severe diabetic gastroparesis. Proper functioning of both devices was confirmed, and ...
