Abstract

We present a case of an 82-year-old patient who underwent transvenous lead extraction of a broken atrial lead, a functional ventricular lead and an abandoned ventricular lead due to suspicion of lead dependent infective endocarditis. The atrial lead was implanted 18 years ago, and 10 years ago it dislodged into the subclavian vein following a fracture. The lead was removed via the femoral vein approach using a pigtail catheter, lasso, Dotter basket, Needle’s Eye Snare and finally the Evolution system.
