PMID:  11449584     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Percutaneous insertion of permanent pacemaker leads through the subclavian vein is an alternative to the cephalic vein approach. A rare occurrence and successful conservative management of extensive pneumomediastinum and subcutaneous emphysema without concomitant pneumothorax resulting from permanent transvenous pacemaker insertion in an 80-year-old man with syncope and arrhythmia is reported.
