Abstract

Tricuspid stenosis occurs after the implantation of a ventricular pacemaker lead and is a rare complication. An inflammatory response is stimulated when the pacemaker leads are passing through the tricuspid valve which leads to fibrosis in the long-term. In our case report, we aim to present a patient with asymptomatic multiple pacemaker lead related tricuspid stenosis and with a history of severe COVID-19 pneumonia.
