Abstract We report visualization of a prominent coronary sinus os valve (Thebesian valve), by electron beam computed tomographic angiography, which impeded an endocardial approach to left ventricular pacing. Resynchronization therapy was therefore performed with an epicardial approach to left ventricular lead placement. Electron beam computed tomographic angiography can provide detailed information for coronary sinus instrumentation, including anomalies potentially affecting the approach to resynchronization therapy.
