Abstract

This report presents experiences and observations with emergency insertion of pervenous electrode catheters through tricuspid prostheses in 2 patients requiring temporary cardiac pacing after surgery. Although insertion was simple and without deleterious hemodynamic effect, the need for precautionary implantation of insulated wire in all patients undergoing open heart surgery is stressed, since this would obviate emergency procedures. Such implanted wire may serve as an accessible means for therapeutic, diagnostic and investigational purposes in the postoperative period.
