A 68-year-old man with a history of coronary artery bypass surgery was referred to our hospital because of pre-syncope on effort. During a treadmill exercise electrocardiogram test, the patient developed advanced atrioventricular block associated with dizziness. Coronary angiography revealed significant stenosis of the right coronary artery, which had not existed at the time of the bypass surgery. We implanted drug-eluting stents in the stenotic lesion, and an exercise test showed resolution of the atrioventricular block. Exercise-induced atrioventricular block is rare, and it is necessary to distinguish it from ischemic heart disease, especially in patients with a history of coronary artery disease.
