We report the case of an 86-year-old woman who presented to the emergency department with syncope and spasms in left upper extremity. She had recently undergone implantation of a dual-chamber pacemaker because of symptomatic, paroxysmal, complete atrioventricular block secondary to syncope. Figure 1 shows the electrocardiogram on her arrival at the emergency room and Figure 2, the chest radiograph.

Figure 2
(0.05MB).

Which diagnosis is most probable?

  • 1.

    Loss of ventricular capture and loss of atrial sensing and capture due to ratchet syndrome.

  • 2.

    Loss of ventricular capture and loss of atrial sensing and capture due to twiddler syndrome.

  • 3.

    Loss of ventricular capture and loss of atrial sensing and capture due to reel syndrome.

  • 4.

    Loss of ventricular capture due to probable ionic remodeling. Atrial lead not implanted.
