A case of complete heart block occurring during the course of a cardiac catheterization in a patient with left bundle branch block is reported. Serial His electrograms revealed the evolution of the conduction defect. In a patient with a pre-existing left bundle branch block, introduction of a pacing catheter into the femoral vein is hazardous and trauma to the right bundle can result in complete heart block.
