Need for Fast Pathway Ablation in Typical Irregular AV Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia in a Patient with Multiple AV Nodal Pathways

JOURNAL OF INTERVENTIONAL CARDIOLOGY, Issue 2 2000
PETER WEISMÜLLER M.D.
A case of a 60-year-old male with irregular AV nodal reentrant tachycardia of the common type is reported. Electrophysiological study revealed multiple antegrade slowly conducting AV nodal pathways and one exclusively retrogradely conducting fast AV nodal pathway. Despite the recommendation for slow pathway ablation as the treatment of choice in patients with AVNRT, first pathway ablation was successfully performed in this case due to the risk of total A V block of ablating the slow pathways. The present report shows that there is the rare patient in whom fast pathway ablation is required for curative treatment of AV nodal reentrant tachycardia. [source]

FURNISS, S.S., et al.: Reduction of Symptoms from LVOT Tachycardia Following Inadvertent Fast Pathway Ablation. VT was mapped to above the aortic valve in a young patient with troublesome palpitations. A single 15-second RF application was inadvertently delivered to a reference His catheter producing permanent first-degree heart block. The patient has been completely asymptomatic since. [source]
