We herein present the case of a 60-year-old male with narrow QRS tachycardia who had a remarkable PR prolongation during sinus rhythm. The tachycardia was diagnosed as a slow-fast atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia. Slow pathway ablation was performed after the confirmation of the presence of an antegrade fast pathway. Following the elimination of the slow pathway, the PR and atrio-His intervals became shortened from 470 and 420 to 170 and 120 ms, respectively. Moreover, the improvement of atrioventricular conduction after the slow pathway ablation lasted for at least 34 months.
