With constantly evolving technology and an ever-increasing number of patients with pacemakers, clinicians will encounter various pacemaker malfunctions in their practice. While some of these issues can be solved even by using only the pacemakers mode settings, others require re-intervention; neglecting a pacemakers malfunction without full investigation threatens the patients life. In this report, we describe a patient with a dual-chamber pacemaker with neglected or unresolved dyssynchronization that occurred 2 years after implantation.
