Pacing and clinical electrophysiology
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a rapidly growing procedure. Conduction disease post-TAVR is frequent and routinely monitored for periprocedurally. Permanent pacemaker placement is relatively common and usually associated with worse outcomes post-TAVR. We report a case of very late presenting complete heart block post-TAVR treated with His-bundle pacing. Our case underscores the need for larger studies to further evaluate the utility of long-term cardiac monitoring post-TAVR and outcomes of His-bundle pacing in this population.
