  • UNUSUAL COMPLICATION OF TEMPORARY PACING WIRES IN CHILDREN ANNALS OF THORACIC SURGERY Bolton, J. W., Mayer, J. E. 1992; 54 (4): 769-770

    Abstract:

    There have been numerous complications described concerning temporary epicardial pacing wires including infection, bleeding, and coronary artery graft disruption. We report a case in which the heart was ensnared by the pacing wire, resulting in cardiac decompensation during attempted removal. This complication may be avoided by assuring that a smaller loop of pacing wire remains in the pericardium.
