Abstract

The case report is presented of a patient in whom an uncomplicated left ventricular transvenous pacing produced right bundle branch block (RBBB). A diagnostic echocardiography, confirmed by cine cardiovascular computed tomography, showed that there was no rupture of the right ventricle and diagnosed a left ventricular pacing, due to malposition of the pacing electrode. The patient was treated with aspirin and dipyridamole during the last 6 years of follow‐up, without any complications, including 1 year of pacing, prior to admission.
