BAUTISTA VARGAS, William Fernando; SAENZ MORALES, Luis Carlos  and  RODRIGUEZ GUERRERO, Diego Andrés. Neck mass secondary to an abandoned pacing lead. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2016, vol.23, n.3, pp.227.e1-227.e5. ISSN 0120-5633.

70-year-old woman with a history of an abandoned pacing lead who developed a deglutition disorder and an aesthetic deformity that made her consult in multiple specialties. Even though surgical removal was considered, endovascular extraction was accomplished with the traction of the lead. We describe the usefulness of the intracardiac echocardiography and the ENSnare® catheter for this type of lead extractions.
