REVIEW
Harry G Mond, Jitendra Vohra
In 1899, Karel Frederik Wenckebach described a cardiac arrhythmia with periodic dropped beats now referred to as a Wenckebach sequence. This was later shown to be due to a block in the atrioventricular node, but today, we identify Wenckebach sequences throughout the heart with most being recognised on the surface electrocardiograph as characteristic footprints. This manuscript will revisit Wenckebach atrioventricular block, the typical features of which only occur in about 15% of cases, with the remainder atypical...

INTRODUCTION: The electrophysiologic basis for characteristic rate-dependent, constant-late-coupled (390+54 msec) premature ventricular beats (PVBs) present 4-5 days following coronary artery occlusion were examined in 108 anesthetized dogs. METHODS AND RESULTS: Fractionated/double potentials were observed in injured zone bipolar and composite electrograms at prolonged sinus cycle lengths (1296 ± 396 msec). At shorter cycle lengths, conduction of the delayed potential decremented, separating from the initial electrogram by a progressively prolonged isoelectric interval...

The present case demonstrated a rare situation alternating between a repetitive atrial tachycardia (AT) and ventricular tachycardia (VT). A unique induction mechanism was noted in which the VT was induced after Wenckebach AV node conduction block following the repetitive rapid AT.

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of ventriculo-atrial (VA) conduction varies from 20% to 90%, depending on the population studied (Militianu et al., 1997; Inoue et al., 1985; Kazmierczak et al., 1993; Ciemniewski et al., 1990; Hayes and Furman, 1983; Westveer et al., 1984). This wide range is mostly based on studies done in patients with implanted devices or impaired atrioventricular conduction. However, the prevalence of VA conduction in structurally normal heart has not been well documented till date...

BACKGROUND: The cardiac sodium/calcium (Na(+)/Ca(2+)) exchanger (NCX) contributes to diastolic depolarization in cardiac pacemaker cells. Increased NCX activity has been found in heart failure and atrial fibrillation. The influence of increased NCX activity on resting heart rate, beta-adrenergic-mediated increase in heart rate, and cardiac conduction properties is unknown. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of NCX overexpression in a homozygous transgenic whole-heart mouse model (NCX-OE) on sinus and AV nodal function...

A Mobitz type I block (Wenckebach phenomenon) with narrow QRS complex is almost always due to a lesion in the AV node. In a type I block with wide QRS complex (>0.12sec), the block can be in the His-Purkinje system in 60-70% of the cases. Even though the progressive PR prolongation with every conducted beat suggests Wenckebach phenomenon, one needs to pay attention to the accompanying QRS complex. In the setting of persistent right bundle branch block, axis change of subsequent conducted beat before an unconducted p suggests alternating fascicular block, giving clue to unreliable infra-Hisian conduction; and in the setting of symptoms, a pacemaker should be implanted...

Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) via the mechanism of thermal mixing has proven itself most powerful for the orientation of nuclear spins in polarized targets and hyperpolarization for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Unfortunately, theoretical descriptions of this mechanism have been limited to using-at least partially-the high temperature approximation, in which Boltzmann factors are expanded linearly. However, the high nuclear spin polarization required and obtained for these applications does not justify such approximations...

BACKGROUND: Autonomic denervation is an alternative approach for patients with symptomatic bradycardia. No consensus exists on the critical targets and end points of the procedure. The aim of this study was to identify immediate end points and critical atrial regions responsible for vagal denervation. METHODS AND RESULTS: We enrolled 14 patients (50% men; age: 34.0±13.8 years) with cardioinhibitory syncope, advanced atrioventricular block or sinus arrest, and no structural heart disease...

BACKGROUND: Swine are a well-recognized animal model for human cardiovascular diseases. Despite the widespread use of porcine model in experimental electrophysiology, still no reference values for intracardiac electrical activity and conduction parameters determined during an invasive electrophysiology study (EPS) have been developed in this species thus far. OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to develop a set of normal values for intracardiac electrical activity and conduction parameters determined during an invasive EPS of swine...

PURPOSE: Catheter ablation of the slow pathway is the most effective treatment for atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT). Cryoenergy, compared to radiofrequency, relates to lower heart block risk but higher incidence of AVNRT recurrences. The aims of this study are to confirm the safety and efficacy of AVNRT cryoablation and to identify predictors of long-term recurrences. METHODS: Among 241 patients undergoing AVNRT cryoablation, 239 (99.2%) experienced acute effective cryoablation of the slow pathway, and no procedure-related complications were reported...

Lyme disease is a multisystem disorder affecting dermatologic, cardiac, nervous and musculoskeletal systems. Cardiac manifestations occur in about 5% of Lyme infections and stem from the involvement of the cardiac conduction system, resulting in varying degrees of sino-atrioventricular block. Occasionally, Lyme infection may also present with myopericarditis. Unlike isolated conduction node disease, myocardial involvement presents a great diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma for the physician. We report the case of a 68 year-old male cardiologist who presented with new onset exertional dyspnea and palpitations...

PURPOSE: To evaluate CT utility for detection of cardiac or lung abnormalities in the diagnosis of organic cardiac disease in subjects with second- or third-degree atrioventricular block (AVB) excepting Wenckebach type. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 50 consecutive patients (25 male; 64±15years) with de novo third- or second-degree AVB underwent both TTE and a combination of cardiac and chest 320 slice CT (Aquilion one, Toshiba Medical) and were retrospectively analyzed...

Mice may now be the preferred animal model for biomedical research due to its anatomical, physiological, and genetic similarity to humans. However, little is known about accentuated antagonism of chronotropic and dromotropic properties in conscious mice. Accordingly, we describe the complex and interacting influence of the autonomic nervous system on cardiac electrophysiology in conscious mice. Specifically, we report the effects of single and combined cardiac autonomic blockade on measurements of pulse interval (heart rate), atrio-ventricular interval, sinus node recovery time (SNRT), SNRT corrected for spontaneous sinus cycle, and Wenckebach cycle length in conscious mice free of the confounding influences of anesthetics and surgical trauma...

Although cardiac arrhythmias are occasionally associated with dental extractions and dental anesthesia, atrioventricular block is rarely seen during dental procedures. We report a rare case of type I second-degree atrioventricular block (Wenckebach phenomenon) occurring after bilateral extraction of impacted mandibular third molars under general anesthesia in a 16-year-old Japanese girl. Under consultation with a cardiovascular physician, we carefully monitored the patient's vital signs postoperatively, including blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and electrocardiogram, using a bedside monitor...

The main mechanism of formation of reentrant cardiac arrhythmias is via formation of waveblocks at heterogeneities of cardiac tissue. We report that heterogeneity and the area of waveblock can extend itself in space and can result formation of new additional sources, or termination of existing sources of arrhythmias. This effect is based on a new form of instability, which we coin as global alternans instability (GAI). GAI is closely related to the so-called (discordant) alternans instability, however its onset is determined by the global properties of the APD-restitution curve and not by its slope...

The inwardly rectifying potassium current (IK 1) conducted through Kir2.X channels contribute to repolarization of the cardiac action potential and to stabilization of the resting membrane potential in cardiomyocytes. Our aim was to investigate the effect of the recently discovered IK 1 inhibitor PA-6 on action potential repolarization and refractoriness in isolated rat hearts. Transiently transfected HEK-293 cells expressing IK 1 were voltage-clamped with ramp protocols. Langendorff-perfused heart experiments were performed on male Sprague-Dawley rats, effective refractory period, Wenckebach cycle length, and ventricular effective refractory period were determined following 200 nmol/L PA-6 perfusion...

BACKGROUND: An animal experiment showed that long-term atrial pacing or persistent atrial fibrillation (AF) caused electrical remodeling of the atrioventricular (AV) node. We aimed to test the hypothesis that persistent AF decreases the AV conductivity in human hearts. METHODS AND RESULTS: We retrospectively compared the cardiac electrophysiological properties between patients with paroxysmal AF who underwent catheter ablation (PXAF, N = 254) and those with persistent or longstanding persistent AF (PSAF, N = 213)...
