Severe tricuspid regurgitation secondary to dislodgement of the atrial loop into the right ventricle: an unusual complication of pacemaker implantation in a young adult.

Abstract

Transvenous pacemaker leads may impair tricuspid valve function. Severe tricuspid regurgitation due to leaflet adhesion to the pacemaker lead has not been reported in a young adult patient in the literature. Our patient underwent a transvenous pacemaker implantation for symptoms of bradycardia. An atrial loop was created in the right atrium for future… (More)
