Transvenous pacing through the pulmonary valve in a patient with cyanotic congenital heart disease after Glenn shunt - A case report.

Srinivas Bhyravavajhala, Bharathi Vanaparty, Sreekanth Yerram,

Bradyarrhythmia requiring pacing is infrequently encountered in patients with complex cyanotic congenital heart disease. Even though epicardial pacing is the preferred mode, rarely, a need for endocardial lead implantation arises. Patients with cavopulmonary shunts limit access to the venous atria and ventricles, necessitating alternate methods of pacemaker implantation. We report ... Read more >>
