    Abstract

    A persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) in combination with an absent right superior vena cava (RSVC) is a rare congenital cardiovascular abnormality which is usually found by chance during pacemaker (PM) implantation. In this case we describe a PM implantation using right cephalic approach through PLSVC and coronary sinus (CS), with lead fixation in right atrium and a posterolateral branch of the CS.
