Abstract

Complete heart block frequently requires emergency pacing to restore systemic perfusion. We report the case of a 3-yr-old girl undergoing interventional atrial septal defect closure who suffered from transient complete heart block with circulatory arrest. Transthoracic mechanical pacing for more than 3 min provided temporary support, sustaining an adequate cardiac output until sinus rhythm resumed.
