Permanent pacemaker positioning via the inferior vena cava in a case of single ventricle with loss of right atrial-vena cava continuity

Pacing and Clinical Electrophysiology : PACE
J N WestM D Gammage

Abstract

Successful dual chamber pacing was achieved by implanting permanent pacemaker leads using an extra-peritoneal approach to the inferior vena cava in a 48-year-old patient with a single ventricle, transposition of the great vessels, and a right atrial pulmonary artery shunt (Glenn's procedure). The pacemaker generator was implanted into a subcutaneous pocket in the anterior abdominal wall.

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.
