We appreciate the comment regarding the interpretation of the rhythm strip we provided for our study (1). Reviewing the rhythm strip in question, we could not disagree with the arguments made by Drs. Kaplan and Denes. After searching the patient’s file, we are unable now to provide a printed confirmation of the third-degree atrioventricular (AV) block we had witnessed during the patient’s intensive care unit monitoring. However, we remain affirmative of the AV dissociation observed during the initial hours after the catheter intervention. Unfortunately, all subsequent records demonstrated 3:2, then 2:1, block until full recovery.
