Abstract

ABSTRACT. Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) lead perforation is a rare but serious complication of cardiac device implantation. Subacute (24 h to one month) and delayed (>1 month) presentations of rupture are also rare. Here we report a case of right ventricular perforation by a ventricular ICD lead in a 61-year-old man that was detected four months' postimplantation. The lead was present out from his chest wall and was palpable beneath the skin.
