Our patient had recurrent syncope due to ventricular tachycardia (VT) after one year of VVI Pacemaker implantation. He had pacemaker pocket infection for which new pacemaker was implanted on opposite side but old lead was not explanted completely. Flouroscopy showed redundant loop of old lead in right ventricular inflow which was snared out subsequently. He never had syncope or VT after that.
