Isolated Complete Heart Block in the Fetus.
Isolated congenital complete heart block (CCHB) is a rare disease with significant associated morbidity and mortality. A diagnosis is often made in fetal life, but data regarding long-term outcomes are limited, and fetal therapy to improve prognosis

Sclerosing Mediastinitis (SM) is a rare condition which is characterized by the presence of dense fibrosis which infiltrates and encroaches upon various structures in the mediastinal cavity. Depending on the extent and the predominant organ of involv

Klebsiella oxytoca Endocarditis With Complete Heart Block.
Gram-negative bacterial endocarditis causes 5% of all bacterial endocarditis. Among gram-negative bacteria, Klebsiella species are rare causes of native valve endocarditis. Klebsiella oxytoca is an extremely rare subspecies that can infrequently caus

Pentology of Fallot's presenting with complete heart block.
A 17-year-old male patient presented with cyanosis, repeated squatting since childhood and haemoptysis since the past 1 month. He had central cyanosis with clubbing. Cardiovasular examination revealed ejection systolic murmur in the pulmonary area wi

Complete heart block as an initial presentation of aortic dissection.
We report a case emphasizing the importance of including type A acute aortic dissection in the differential diagnosis of patients presenting with compete heart block, where emergent surgery is the treatment of choice and any delay in diagnosis and tr

Intraoperative monitoring of flash visual evoked potential under general anesthesia.
In neurosurgical procedures that may cause visual impairment in the intraoperative period, the monitoring of flash visual evoked potential (VEP) is clinically used to evaluate visual function. Patients are unconscious during surgery under general ane

Iatrogenic Transient Complete Heart Block in a Preexisting LBBB.
Catheter induced cardiac arrhythmia is a well-known complication encountered during pulmonary artery or cardiac catheterization. Injury to the cardiac conducting system often involves the right bundle branch which in a patient with preexisting left b

Late-presenting complete heart block after pediatric cardiac surgery.
Late presenting complete heart block after pediatric cardiac surgery is a rare complication and its management is well defined once the initial diagnosis in made timely and appropriately. In this report we described a child who underwent atrioventric
