INTRODUCTION The mechanisms of the ventricular response during atrial fibrillation (AF) remain uncertain. The parameters obtained during an electrophysiologic study, including atrial rates during AF, were analyzed to clarify further the determinants of the ventricular rate during AF. METHODS AND RESULTS Thirty patients without manifest preexcitation in whom AF was induced during electrophysiologic study were divided into two groups. Group 1 consisted of 20 patients (ages 55 +/- 10 years… CONTINUE READING
