Complete atrioventricular block during exercise: New insights from an old test
Exercise stress testing can have a central role in the assessment of cardiovascular disease. Contemporary data, however, has highlighted the added value of imaging modalities over the exercise electrocardiogram in the investigation of coronary artery disease. Given the physiological changes associated with exercise and the possibility to address other parameters such as rhythm changes and the chronotropic response, exercise stress testing with continuous electrocardiographic monitoring can still have an important place in contemporary clinical practice. We report the case of a complete atrioventricular block associated with exercise and discuss the current role of exercise stress testing with continuous electrocardiographic monitoring in this entity.
