2:1 Block with Wenckebach Mechanism in Children Due to Different Etiologies

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.577
Synopsis: 
Our results suggest that the clues indicating a Wenckebach mechanism in children with 2:1 atrioventricular block (2:1 AVB) can be obtained by noninvasive techniques. In children with sustained 2:1 AVB intracardiac electrophysiological study can help in the differentiation, and the prognosis seems good.

ABSTRACT

Objective: In children 2:1 Atrioventricular Block (AVB) with Wenckebach mechanism is a rare entity.

Subjects and methods: In 7 children, 2:1 Atrioventricular Block (AVB) with Wenckebach mechanism was detected. The clinical features of these children are retrospectively evaluated.
