Maria Grazia Bongiorni, Giovanni Coluccia*, Luca Segreti, Luca Paperini and Ezio Soldati

We report a case of effective trans catheter repositioning of an ICD lead that was displaced during a trans venous extraction procedure of another malfunctioning ICD lead. This original technique was effective also in screwing-in the active fixation tip of the lead. Skilled operators could take into account this technique to avoid the re-opening of the device pocket, when dealing with specific situations at high risk of infection.
