DIAGNOSIS: Sinus rhythm, atrial bigeminy with right bundle branch block (RBBB) type aberrant ventricular conduction of alternate atrial premature complexes (APCs), and Q waves of inferior and anterolateral myocardial infarcts of indeterminate age.
Aberrant ventricular conduction was first described by Sir Thomas Lewis in 1910, (1) and Ashman (2,3) and Langendorf (4) subsequently elaborated on its various mechanisms.
(2,6) With each APC with aberrant ventricular conduction, the RBB is not depolarized in an antegrade fashion, but instead is depolarized approximately 0.10 seconds later than usual by an impulse that crosses the ventricular septum from left to right and then makes its way into the RBB.
