Answer

Permanent ventricular pacing is not indicated for the following [21] :

  • Transient AV block in the absence of intraventricular conduction defects
  • Transient AV block in the presence of isolated left anterior fascicular block
  • New bundle-branch block or fascicular block in the absence of AV block
  • Persistent asymptomatic first-degree AV block in the presence of bundle-branch or fascicular block
