INTRODUCTION Atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) is the most common regular supraventricular tachycardia in the general population as well as in elderly patients. The purpose of the study was to investigate the success and complication rate particularly regarding the induction of an atrioventricular (AV) block by radiofrequency (RF) ablation in elderly patients with and without a preexisting AV block. METHODS AND RESULTS Between February 1998 and July 2004, all patients with… CONTINUE READING
