A method using cryosurgery has been previously described to selectively ablate atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia while preserving intact atrioventricular conduction. The purpose of the present study was to define the histologic features of the cryolesions in relationship to the specialized conduction system. In 12 adult dogs a series of nine discrete cryolesions was placed along the perimeter of the triangle of Koch while continuously monitoring the His bundle electrogram. All animals… CONTINUE READING
