Abstract

We present a case of temporary guidewire pacing in a patient with Fontan anatomy during transcatheter aortic valve implantation. Temporary pacing was successfully achieved utilizing this method without complications. There is an increasing population of patients with complex congenital heart disease and expanding variety of transcatheter interventions. Due to limitations in vascular access and surgical anatomies, guidewire pacing may have a wide array of potential applications in pediatrics and the congenital heart disease population.
