Abstract

Leadless pacemaker implantation rates are increasing worldwide. These pacemakers have to be deployed , captured and redeployed in order to achieve optimal electric parameters. Various complications occur during this procedure. We herein report a unique case, where right ventricular(RV) pacing lead of the patient was accidentally snapped during MICRA deployment in a elderly male with pocket site infection.
