Abstract: 16 athletic patients were examined because of syncope, Stokes-Adams attacks, or both. The life-threatening condition required pacemaker implantation in 7 patients. 8 of the 9 other subjects became symptom-free after stopping heavy physical training. 37 top-ranking athletes underwent 24 h Holter monitoring. Pauses longer than 2 s occurred in 19% and resulted from sinus arrest. The longest pause lasted 2.5 s. Second-degree atrioventricular block was noted in 13%.
