Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Catheter ablation was attempted in 2 patients with atrioventricular node reentry tachycardia which showed fast, intermediate and slow anterograde atrioventricular node pathways. Radiofrequency currents were applied within a restricted area of the tricuspid annulus between the His bundle and the ostium of the coronary sinus where presumed slow pathway potentials were identified. Elimination of both the intermediate and the slow pathways, with preservation of anterograde and retrograde fast pathway conduction, was achieved in both patients.
