Preliminary clinical experience indicates that flecainide is a useful antiarrhythmic agent for the suppression of spontaneous ventricular arrhythmias. The drug also exerts marked effects on accessory atrioventricular (AV) pathway and retrograde fast AV nodal pathway refractoriness, and therefore may be effective in treatment and prevention of reentrant supraventricular tachycardias. Electrophysiologic studies indicate that flecainide slows atrial, AV nodal, His-Purkinje and intraventricular… CONTINUE READING
