A 63-year-old woman with metastatic breast cancer was referred to our bronchoscopy unit for outpatient laser resection of an endobronchial mass through fiberoptic bronchoscopy. The patient had no history of ischemic heart disease. During the procedure, the patient developed an ST-segment elevation and a complete atrioventricular block. IV nitroglycerin and morphine were effective in treating this episode. In this patient, we were able to demonstrate a focal spasm by postbronchoscopy coronary angiography.
