A 77-year-old patient with cardiovascular risk factors–hypertension and type 2 diabetes mellitus–and a history of untreated paroxysmal atrial fibrillation episodes was admitted due to detection of bradycardia during blood pressure measurement and mild nonspecific dizziness lasting just a few seconds. The patient has never had syncope or other cardiac symptoms but was admitted from the emergency department due to the presence of nonconducted P waves with interference from a ventricular rhythm (wide QRS complex), which was interpreted as atrioventricular block (Figure).


In your opinion, what is the most probable diagnosis of the patient's baseline electrocardiogram?

  • 1.

    Supraventricular extrasystole with accessory pathway conduction.

  • 2.

    Isolated ventricular extrasystole and nonconducted atrial extrasystole.

  • 3.

    Atrial rhythm with Mobitz II atrioventricular block.

  • 4.

    Atrial rhythm with ventricular extrasystole and concealed ventriculoatrial conduction.
