(9.) Lipscomb KJ, Zaidi AM, Fitzpatrick AR Slow pathway modification for atrioventricular node reentrant tachycardia
: fast junctional tachycardia predicts adverse prognosis.
Dual A-V nodal pathways typically come to medical attention when a patient presents with A-V nodal reentrant tachycardia
, which most often begins with an atrial premature complex that blocks in the fast pathway, is conducted down the slow pathway, and then returns retrogradely up the fast pathway that is no longer refractory.
AV node reentrant tachycardia
occurs when an electrical short-circuit happens in the centre of the heart.
A modified electrocardiographic algorithm for differentiating typical atrioventricular node reentrant tachycardia
from atrioventricular reciprocating tachycardia mediated by concealed accessory pathway.
Atrial fibrillation which can result in ventricular fibrillation and reentrant tachycardia
causing paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia or ventricular tachycardia are known to occur.
Catheter ablation of accessory pathways, atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia
, and the atrioventricular junction: final results of a prospective, multicenter clinical trial.

Flecainide acetate is an antiarrhythmic drug indicated for use in patients without structural heart disease for the prevention of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardias, including atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia
and other supraventricular tachycardias of unspecified mechanism associated with disabling symptoms as well as paroxysmal atrial fibrillation/flutter associated with disabling symptoms.
In a similar case , a patient suffered from atrial flutter and atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia
and severe heart failure caused by tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy with thrombus in the LAA.
Supraventricular arrhythmias occur in 20% of BrS subjects: atrial fibrillation (10-20% of cases), atrial flutter, atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia
, pre-excitation syndromes.
She was immediately taken to the emergency department where an extensive clinical exam and laboratory tests found no abnormalities: her liver and kidney function, electrolytes, cardiac enzymes, and D-dimers were all normal; and an electrocardiogram (ECG) showed a heart rate of 110 beats per minute, left atrial enlargement, atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia
, and T-wave changes (normal findings after heart transplant surgery).
