Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In a patient with complete heart block and chronic lymphocytic leukemia a pacemaker lead could not be introduced from either the right or left subclavian vein. Digital subtraction angiography excluded a neoplastic mediastinal mass, demonstrated a unilateral left superior vena cava and defined the best route for lead insertion.
