Use of the retained guidewire technique facilitates left ventricular epicardial capture during biventricular defibrillator implantation.

We report a case of biventricular implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) insertion in which standard lead placement techniques could not achieve left ventricular capture. Protrusion of the guidewire beyond a venous stenosis provided adequate left ventricular capture.
