Abstract

A false pattern of intermittent complete A V block was seen in two asymptomatic patients when A V dissociation was superimposed on a basic 2:1 A V block. Although the conduction disturbance occurred at the A V nodal level in both cases, in Case 2 it resembled A V block due to bilateral or trifascicular disease. This arrhythmia was the end result of Type I (Wenckebach) block and apparently has a better prognosis than those emerging from a Type II (Mobitz) block.
