BACKGROUND Atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT), the most common form of supraventricular tachycardia, results from conduction through a reentrant circuit comprising fast and slow atrioventricular nodal pathways. Antiarrhythmic-drug therapy is not consistently successful in controlling this rhythm disturbance. Catheter ablation of the fast pathway with radiofrequency current eliminates AVNRT, but it can produce heart block. We hypothesized that catheter ablation of the site of… CONTINUE READING
