Histological finding of maternal antibody-associated congenital heart block accompanied by large atrial septal defect and severe cardiac dysfunction
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 30 March 2022
Cardiac dysfunction commonly occurs in congenital heart block associated with maternal anti-SSA antibodies, especially after pacemaker implantation. We report the case of a 4-year-old girl with antibody-associated congenital heart block and a large secundum atrial septal defect who presented with significant cardiac dysfunction 4 years after pacemaker implantation. Histological findings were useful for determining the course of treatment and perioperative risk of intracardiac repair.
