Abstract

Delayed intracardiac lead perforation has been defined as migration and perforation after one month of implantation. It is a rare complication; pathophysiology and optimal management are currently unclear. Recognition of these cases becomes important with increasing use of these devices. We describe such a case of delayed lead perforation.
