OBJECTIVES We hypothesized that modulation of atrioventricular (AV) node conduction, allowing a reduction in ventricular rate during atrial fibrillation or flutter without affecting AV conduction during sinus rhythm, might be achieved through ablation of the "slow" AV node pathway. BACKGROUND In patients with atrial fibrillation or flutter not amenable to a direct atrial approach, ablation of the His bundle is performed to induce complete AV block. This procedure causes pacemaker dependence… CONTINUE READING
