Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Modulation of ventricular parasystole by sinus beats has been shown to result in a biphasic phase response curve. Some reports also indicate that the modulation effect could be described by a triphasic response with an early phase of acceleration, which would correspond to the supernormal phase of excitability. Two cases of such triphasic phase response curves are reported. The coexistence of ventricular couplets and parasystole is also discussed. The second beat of the couplet has often been explained by reentry or reflection, but could also be interpreted as due to supernormal modulation, resulting in an accelerated second ectopic response.
