Delayed lead perforation: a rare cause of pacemaker dysfunction.

PMID:  21874925     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Process    
A 65-year-old woman with a dual-chamber pacemaker implanted in 2006 for symptomatic carotid sinus hypersensitivity was incidentally found to have loss of ventricular capture on routine pacemaker interrogation. A chest X-ray raised the suspicion of perforation and migration of the right ventricular lead, confirmed by three-dimensional echocardiogram and CT scan. On the basis of this case, we review myocardial lead perforation, including predisposing factors, pathophysiological mechanisms, diagnostic approach and therapeutic options.
