The patient had been submitted to myocardial revascularization surgery (2 years previously); first, right coronary artery angioplasty (CAA) with stent (within 11/2 year); second, CAA (within 1 year), due to intrastent restenosis; third, CAA (about 9 months before) with new restenosis and stent implantation in ACD and previous descending artery (ADA); fourth, stent implantation due to restenosis (within 3 months); and finally, 2 months ago, this patient presented second degree atrium-ventricular block (mobitz II), being submitted to definitive artificial cardiac pacemaker implantation.

At the beginning of the test, sinus rhythm with first-degree to Mobitz type II second-degree atrioventricular block was noted and no more inducible myocardial ischemia at the peak exercise that reached 85% of the maximal, age-predicted heart rate [Figure 1]f.
The exclusion criteria were patients with baseline HR< 60 bpm, those with hypovolaemia and SBP < 90 mm of Hg, those with Mobitz type 2 and 3rd degree heart block, those with pre-existing comorbidities like cardiac, hepatic, pulmonary, neurological, endocrine or renal diseases, patients with past history of chronic hypertension, those developing Haemolysis, Elevated Liver enzymes and low platelets (HELLP syndrome), having allergy to the study drugs, history of drug abuse, use of antipsychotic or sedative medications.
Mobitz type 2 block developed in the patient followed-up with ECG monitorization.
Our patient also had a first-degree AV block at baseline and was on metoprolol which was discontinued in spite of which he developed Mobitz type II block 6 months after PCI which was completely new.
