Abstract

Ventricular perforation is a rare complication of permanent cardiac pacemaker implantation. We report here on a 68-year-old woman with a dual chamber permanent pacemaker that had been implanted one month earlier, and she suffered cardiac perforation from the pacemaker lead. Frequent follow-up via12-lead surface electrocardiography and chest radiography and the proper work-up for pacemaker implantation are needed for detecting rare complications after pacemaker implantation.
