An inadvertent lead placement in the left ventricle is rarely and late reported complication of permanent heart stimulation. Malposition of pacing lead in the left ventricle is highly associated with thromboembolic complications. The recommended treatment is early lead removal or in case of lack of that option permanent anticoagulation. Three cases of malposition of pacing lead with specific analysis of diagnostic value of ECG tracings, chest X ray and echocardiograms are presented.
