OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine if the atrial response upon cessation of ventricular pacing associated with 1:1 ventriculoatrial conduction during paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia is a useful diagnostic maneuver in the electrophysiology laboratory. BACKGROUND Despite various maneuvers, it can be difficult to differentiate atrial tachycardia from other forms of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia. METHODS The response upon cessation of ventricular pacing… CONTINUE READING
