Device insertion is a common cardiovascular procedure. Devices are implanted into the right heart; which is a safeguard against systemic thromboembolism. Lead insertion into the left ventricle is rare. This is a case of a defibrillator lead inadvertently inserted into the left cavity. This was discovered 6 years later.
