AVB in inferior infarction is transient and does not imply a poor prognosis. LAD in inferior infarction may be due to loss of inferior forces, LVH, or SBH. Classical IBH was not identified. However, a group of patients with divergent vector loops, who had initial forces superior and broad, slurred terminal inferior forces, and prolongation of QRS duration raise the question of delayed conduction inferiorly due to peri-infarction block, diffuse fibrosis. LVH, or delay in the Purkinje network.

    Complete atrioventricular (AV) block is known to be reversible in some cases of acute inferior wall myocardial infarction (MI). The reversibility of high-grade AV block in non-MI coronary artery disease (CAD), however, is rarely described in the literature. Herein we perform a literature review...
