Abstract

Twiddler’s syndrome (TS) is the well known late electrotherapy complication. The typical TS develops as a result of the pulse generator rotation with retraction of the leads and consequent interruption of pacing. We reported 2 cases illustrating late TS without spontaneous old, ingrown lead extraction and very different leads damage.
