Complete heart block complicating retrograde left ventricular catheterization: case report and review.

Journal Article (Review)

Complete heart block (CHB) following retrograde left ventricular catheterization is uncommon. We report a case of transient CHB in a patient with severe aortic stenosis and bifascicular block on the baseline surface electrocardiogram during retrograde left ventricular catheterization. The block resolved spontaneously without sequelae. A review of the literature using MedLine was performed and recommendations for temporary and permanent pacing are outlined.
