Procainamide administration during electrophysiology study--utility as a provocative test for intermittent atrioventricular block.

Abstract

The utility of procainamide, up to 10 mg/kg IV, as a provocative test for intermittent high degree atrioventricular (AV) block was evaluated in a total of 89 patients.
