sup][4] Our case report showed in young patients, how this disease may present at the beginning with acute right heart failure, without ventricular arrhythmias but with episodes of symptomatic bradycardia that require the reconstruction of pulmonary valve and use of cardiac resynchronization therapy to avoid the well-known, long-term adverse effects of the right ventricular pacing.
