Abstract

Previous work performed in our department and published in The American Journal of Cardiology discussed the dynamics of pacing-induced atrioventricular nodal or atrio (A):His (H) conduction ratios appearing during incremental atria1 stimulation at cycle lengths longer than those at which stable 2: 1 block was seen.1 However, this report examines the dynamics of blocks occurring at even shorter cycle lengths, specifically when 2:1 block increases to higher degrees of block during the same pacing run.
