Abstract

Pacing in children is mainly performed in the setting of congenital or post-surgical complete heart block and less frequently in some surgical patients with sinus node dysfunction. The indications, anatomical variations, and the technical skills required for pacing children are different compared to those for adults. We report the case of a 3-year-old boy presenting with a congenital complete atrioventricular block and underwent epicardial permanent pacing.
