Infection of cardiac implantable electronic devices is one of the most dangerous complications, and the main treatment approach is the removal of cardiac implantable electronic device from the body. We present a case of successful lead removal of implantable cardioverter-defibrillator infection at which right ventricular lead had giant vegetation material. We performed percutaneous debulking of giant right ventricular lead vegetation by percutaneous approach under the realtime intracardiac echocardiography visualization because of the high risk of pulmonary artery embolization of giant infectious material and poor lung and general condition of the patient.

Keywords: Endocarditis, intracardiac echocardiography, lead extraction
