Paroxysmal complete atrioventricular block in a patient with pulmonary atresia and intact ventricular septum

  • Akash R. Patel (a1), David Goldberg (a1) and Maully Shah (a1)

Sudden death in pulmonary atresia and intact ventricular septum with right ventricular dependent coronary circulation is a well-established complication, and is thought to be caused by myocardial ischaemia. We report a case of paroxysmal complete atrioventricular block that raises the possibility of an additional mechanism of sudden death.
