Permanent transfemoral pacinghas been described as an alternative route in patients in whom the superior venous approach is not feasible. This report describes the use of the femoral venous approach to insert a permanent pacemaker in a child with Maroteaux Lamy syndrome who has complete atrioventricular block and abnormal subclavian venous anatomy. Transfemoral pacing may be a suitable alternative in children with short stature.
