Abstract

Epicardial pacing is frequently used in pediatric patients with congenital heart disease. Automatic threshold determination has been reported to be safe in epicardial lead systems. We report a case of falsely low ventricular thresholds determined by automatic capture verification in a patient with complete loss of capture due to a lead fracture.
