PERMANENT PACEMAKER IMPLANTATION IN A 1200G-PRETERM SUFFERING FROM CONGENITAL ATRIOVENTRICULAR BLOCK

0

Congenital third-degree (complete) atrioventricular block requires pacemaker implantation where prenatal hydrops, low ventricular rate (<45 bpm) non-response to inotropes, and/or left ventricular dysfunction is present. A permanent pacemaker was implanted in a 1200g 9 day old preterm: the smallest newborn successfully subjected to this procedure, according to literature.
