This report presents, for the first time, clear evidence supporting the occurrence of Wenckebach and 2:1 H-V block during His bundle pacing. The simultaneous recording of various intracardiac electrograms, as well as the comparison of the effects produced by selective His bundle pacing and high right atrial pacing at the same rates, permitted the identification of conduction disturbances located distal to the paced His bundle site. This could be done although one criterion usually required to diagnose selective His bundle pacing (namely, stimulus-V intervals of constant duration) was not present.
