Abstract:

The inadvertent malposition of a temporary pacemaker lead in the left ventricle through patent foramen ovale is rare. A case of a man with hypertension and diabetes mellitus presented with sudden onset of retrosternal chest pain. His ECG showed ST-segment elevation and T-wave inversion in leads II, III, and a VF. Coronary angiography was immediately performed. Before right coronary artery intervention, prophylactic temporary pacemaker was inserted. After percutaneous coronary intervention was performed for the RCA, Two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography showed the pacemaker lead passed though patent foramen ovale and placed on the mid inferior septum on left ventricle.
