Transvenous placement of a right ventricular pacemaker lead through the artificial tricuspid valve is a known contraindication, and in this situation, epicardial pacemaker implantation is the procedure of choice. However, permanent pacemaker implantation is a subject for debate when the use of the epicardial route is impossible. This report describes alternate transvenous routes for a pacemaker lead in a patient with an artificial tricuspid valve and mitral valve in whom the epicardial lead and pacemaker generator must be removed because of resistant infection.
