摘要

Haemothorax resulting from injury to a great vessel is a potential complication during transvenous pacemaker implantation that can be caused by perforation by the electrode. If the amount of bleeding is massive, control needs thoracotomy. We report on a 70-year-old man who had a massive haemothorax following transvenous pacemaker implantation. This complication was controlled successfully by using positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP). We conclude that this simple but reproducible experience may offer effective haemostasis for a massive haemothorax caused by transvenous catheter perforation.
