Adult patients with clinically related symptoms and high degree atrioventricular block are routinely referred for permanent pacing. The incidence of coronary artery disease is higher in a middle-aged group of patients presenting with atrioventricular block. In patients with stable coronary artery disease, ischaemic episodes may result in intermittent atrioventricular block with clinical symptoms. Herein, we present the clinical course of four consecutive patients admitted to our hospital with the diagnosis of atrioventricular block.
