Abstract

Heart perforation is rare but potentially fatal complication (about 1% of patients) after pacemaker, cardioverter-defibrillator or electrostimulations electrodes implantations. Complications in 81-years-old women after pacemaker implantation, reimplantation and endocavity electrode implantation with second-degree atrioventricular block is presented.
