We present the long-term follow-up of a 31-year-old woman who underwent cardioneuroablation (for atrioventricular (AV) block. Slow pathway ablation was performed in September 2017 with normal follow-up until April 2018, when the patient started noticing symptoms of palpitations at rest, and the electrocardiogram showed a Mobitz I AV block. A cardiac stress test and 24-h Holter monitoring demonstrated first- and second-degree block and normal AV conduction during times of higher heart rate. (Level of Difficulty: Advanced.)
