LAM ET AL.: Transvenous Dual Chamber Pacemaker Implantation via a Persistent Left Superior Vena Cava. A 73-year-old patient underwent dual chamber pacemaker implantation because of symptomatic second-degree heart block. During implantation, persistence of the left superior vena cava was observed. A passive fixation right ventricular lead and an active fixation right atrial lead were used with satisfactory long-term pacing and sensing result. (J HK Coll Cardiol 2002;10:94-97)
