The coexistence of Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW) and atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT).

Turk J Emerg Med 2018 Sep 13;18(3):131-133. Epub 2018 Apr 13.

Sisli Hamidiye Etfal Education and Research Hospital, Department of Emergency Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

Atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) is the most common type of reentrant paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia that occurs in the presence of dual AV nodal physiology. Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is another type of supraventricular tachycardia characterized by short PR intervals, delta waves and wide QRS complexes on the surface electrocardiogram (ECG), reflecting atrioventricular pre-excitation. Uncommonly, AV nodal reentry and accessory pathways can coexist. Read More

A contemporary view of atrioventricular nodal physiology.

J Interv Card Electrophysiol 2018 Jun 16. Epub 2018 Jun 16.

Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiology, Weill Cornell Medical Center, 525 East 68th Street, New York, NY, 10065, USA.

In delaying transmission of the cardiac impulse from the atria to the ventricles, the atrioventricular (AV) node serves a critical function in augmenting ventricular filling during diastole and limiting the ventricular response during atrial tachyarrhythmias. The complex structure of the nodal region, however, also provides the substrate for reentrant rhythms. Recent discoveries have elucidated the cellular basis and anatomical determinants of slow conduction in the node. Read More

Advanced Concepts of Atrioventricular Nodal Electrophysiology: Observations on the Mechanisms of Atrioventricular Nodal Reciprocating Tachycardias.

Card Electrophysiol Clin 2018 06;10(2):277-297

Heart and Vessels Department, University of Florence, Largo Brambilla, 3, Florence 50134, Italy; IRCCS Multimedica, Cardiology Department, Via Milanese, 300, 20099 Sesto San Giovanni, Italy.

Atrioventricular node reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) is a supraventricular arrhythmia easily diagnosed by 12-lead electrocardiogram. What is far more challenging, is the understanding of the reentrant circuit in its typical and atypical presentations. The function of the atrioventricular node is still incomplete and this knowledge gap is reflected in the reconstruction of the pathways used by AVNRT in its multiform presentations. Read More

Baylor Heart and Vascular Institute, Dallas, TX, USA.

Introduction: Radiofrequency (RF) ablation is effective for slow pathway ablation, but carries a risk of inadvertent AV block requiring permanent pacing. By comparison, cryoablation with a 4-mm distal electrode catheter has not been reported to cause permanent AV block but has been shown to be less effective than RF ablation. We sought to define the safety and efficacy of a 6-mm distal electrode cryoablation catheter for slow pathway ablation in patients with atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia (AVNRT). Read More

Comparison of 6-mm Versus 8-mm-Tip Cryoablation Catheter for the Treatment of Atrioventricular Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia in Children: A Prospective Study.

Pediatr Cardiol 2017 Aug 13;38(6):1220-1225. Epub 2017 Jun 13.

Pediatric and Genetic Arrhythmia Center, Istanbul Medipol University, TEM Avrupa Otoyolu Goztepe Cikisi, No 1, Bagcilar, 14, Istanbul, Turkey.

Due to its safety profile, cryoablation (Cryo) for atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) is more commonly preferred over radiofrequency (RF) ablation in children in recent years. Recent studies demonstrated high long-term success rates comparable to radiofrequency ablation. The aim of this prospective study was to compare the efficacy and safety of an 8-mm-tip versus 6-mm-tip Cryo catheter in the treatment of AVNRT in children. Read More

Atrial and ventricular activation sequence after ventricular induction/entrainment pacing during fast-slow atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia: New insight into the use of V-A-A-V for the differential diagnosis of supraventricular tachycardia.

Heart Rhythm 2017 11 10;14(11):1615-1622. Epub 2017 Jun 10.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Gunma University Graduate School of Medicine, Maebashi, Gunma, Japan.

Background: The atrial and ventricular response observed immediately after cessation of ventricular induction/entrainment pacing is commonly analyzed to discriminate atrial tachycardia from other supraventricular tachycardias during electrophysiologic studies. However, the response in fast-slow atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (F/S-AVNRT) remains poorly investigated.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to analyze the atrial and ventricular activation patterns after ventricular pacing in F/S-AVNRT. Read More

Shortening of the atrial-His bundle interval during atrial pacing as a predictor of successful ablation for typical atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia.

Europace 2018 04;20(4):654-658

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Chiba University Graduate School of Medicine, Chiba, 1-8-1 Inohana, Chuo-ku, Chiba 260-8670, Japan.

Aims: Shortening of the atrial-His bundle (AH) interval during the sinus rhythm is occasionally observed after slow pathway ablation for atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia (AVNRT). In addition, high-rate atrial pacing is useful for avoiding atrioventricular block. We hypothesized that shortening of the AH interval during slow pathway ablation under high-rate atrial pacing would lead to successful ablation of typical AVNRT. Read More

Atrioventricular nodal echoes over a wide echo window as a therapeutic end point for the catheter-guided radiofrequency ablation of atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia: a prospective study.

Europace 2018 04;20(4):659-664

Kowsar Hospital, Fars Hear Foundation, Shiraz, Iran.

Aims: In previous retrospective studies, it was shown that the presence of residual single atrioventricular node (AVN) echoes with an echo zone longer than 30 ms may increase the rate of recurrence after radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of slow pathway in patients with AVN reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT). Based on that, some centres perform additional RFA in these patients. However, this opinion has never been tested prospectively and many centres do not perform re-ablation in these patients.

Slow Pathway Radiofrequency Ablation Using Magnetic Navigation: A Description of Technique and Retrospective Case Analysis.

Heart Lung Circ 2017 Dec 21;26(12):1297-1302. Epub 2017 Feb 21.

Cardiology Department, Westmead Hospital, Sydney, NSW, Australia; Sydney Medical School, University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia. Electronic address:

Background: The Magnetic Navigation System (MNS) catheter was shown to be stable in the presence of significant cardiac wall motion and delivered more effective lesions compared to manual control. This stability could potentially make AV junctional re-entrant tachycardia (AVNRT) ablation safer. The aim of this study is to describe the method of mapping and ablation of AVNRT with MNS and 3-D electro-anatomical mapping system (CARTO, Biosense Webster, Diamond bar, CA, USA) anatomical mapping, with a view to improve the safety of ablation.
