Abstract

We report a case of lead migration into the right middle pulmonary lobe. The migrated electrode reached the pleura and produced severe pleural symptoms, therefore, surgical removal of the retained lead was required. This case report demonstrates the importance of a chest X ray in the follow-up of patients with an implanted pacemaker to detect complications like lead fracture or migration.
