PMID:  20609793     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The management of complete heart block in premature low birth-weight infants, particularly those with hydrops fetalis, is challenging. We report emergent implantation of permanent epicardial pacemakers in the first 48 hours of life in two premature infants (one with hydrops fetalis) with birth weights of 1,400 grams and 1,000 grams.
