Abstract

Objective: To find the frequency of complete heart block (CHB) in patients
undergoing surgical perimembranous Ventricular septal defect (VSD) closure.
Methodology: This was a Descriptive cross sectional study performed in Car -diovascular Department Lady Reading Hospital Peshawar. Data was collect-ed from 28 January 2013 to 28 July 2013 with sample size of 103.Sampling
technique was non probability consecutive. All patients with perimembranous
ventricular septal defect, aged 5 years to 25 years with any gender were in-cluded in the study.
Results:-Mean age was 12.63 years ± 6.63. Patients were divided in four cat -egories according to their age. Over all complete heart block in the perimem-branous ventricular septal defect after surgical closure was 10(9.71%). Age
wise distribution of complete heart block shows that majority of the complete
heart block 6(12.8%) were found in age less than or equal to 10 years.
Conclusion:-VSD closure is less often associated with CHB but there should
be arrangements for pace maker to timely pace the patient in case of any
emergency.
