Abstract

We report the case of a patient with ischaemic cardiomyopathy who underwent cardiac resynchronization therapy with defibrillator back-up. He re-presented 3 weeks later with chest pain, having received two shocks. We describe a case of late perforation with the Riata lead causing inappropriate shocks.
