Forecast and prevention of AV blockade. The impact of the developed atrioventricular blockade on the patient's later life and ability to work is determined by a number of factors and, above all, the level and degree of blockade, the underlying disease. The most serious prognosis is in the III degree of AV blockade: patients are unable to work, the development of heart failure is noted.
The development of distal AV blockades due to the threat of complete blockade and rare ventricular rhythm, as well as their occurrence against the background of acute myocardial infarction, complicates the prognosis. Early implantation of a pacemaker can increase the life expectancy of patients with AV block and improve their quality of life. Complete congenital atrioventricular block is more favorable prognostically than acquired.
