Transcutaneous or transvenous pacing of the right ventricle is performed as a routine practice for patients received with symptomatic bradycardia or complete heart block with relative ease in cath lab. However, more and more patients are received with multiple comorbidities, critical condition, and difficult vascular access. In this article, we describe a patient with difficult venous access with tricuspid regurgitation and displaced the right ventricular pacemaker temporary lead undergoing coronary angiography who was managed with emergent nonconventional left ventricular pacing.
