Considering the electrophysiologic study as a reference, the RR interval distribution analysis is a sensitive (88%) and specific (80%) noninvasive method for detecting dual atrioventricular (AV) node physiology. This method may prove useful in selecting patients with atrial fibrillation who are considered appropriate candidates for radiofrequency modification of AV nodal conduction as opposed to AV nodal ablation.
