In the presence of an artificial tricuspid valve, permanent pacing is generally achieved with an epimyocardial approach. This report describes the implantation of a dedicated pacing electrode in a low posterolateral cardiac vein in a patient with a mechanical prosthetic tricuspid, mitral and aortic valve in whom an epimyocardial lead and pacemaker generator had to be removed because of infection.
