We report a case of inadvertent transarterial implantation of dual-chamber pacemaker leads; the ventricular lead positioned across the aortic valve into the left ventricle and the atrial lead curving in the aortic root with the tip positioned into the left circumflex artery, resulting in acute myocardial infarction. The diagnosis was made based on the finding on the chest X-ray, surface ECG, and coronary angiography.
