A 19-year-old man diagnosed with spongiform cardiomyopathy and ventricular preexcitacion was referred to our hospital for electrophysiological (EP) testing after a syncopal episode. Baseline electrocardiogram (ECG) showed ventricular preexcitation consistent with the presence of a superior paraseptal, anteroseptal, accessory pathway (AP). After triple femoral vein puncture a decapolar catheter was placed in the coronary sinus, a tetrapolar catheter in the His bundle region (with no clear His deflection recorded thorough the EP study) and a 4mm-tip irrigated ablation catheter initially at the RV apex. Programmed atrial extrastimuli from the coronary sinus reproducibly induced nonsustained and sustained episodes of an irregular narrow QRS tachycardia with apparent atrioventricular dissociation in the surface ECG (figure 1). Intracardiac recording during ongoing tachycardia are also shown (figures 2 and 3). What is the involved mechanism? This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
