Ming Liang, Zulu Wang, Yanchun Liang, Guitang Yang, Zhiqing Jin, Mingyu Sun, Yaling Han
BACKGROUND: Catheter ablation of para-Hisian accessory pathways (APs) can be challenging because of adjacent conduction tissue. Some different approaches for ablation, including the inferior vena cava approach (IVC-A), the noncoronary cusp approach (NCC-A), or the superior vena cava approach (SVC-A), have been reported. However, when should para-Hisian APs be mapped and ablated by the IVC-A, NCC-A, or SVC-A is not well established. METHODS AND RESULTS: This study included 55 consecutive patients (mean age, 53±11 years, 36 males) with para-Hisian APs...

BACKGROUND: The accessory pathway (AP) connecting the right atrial appendage (RAA) and the right ventricle (RV) is rare. OBJECTIVE: We sought to investigate the feature of the AP connecting the RAA and the RV and the efficacy of radiofrequency catheter ablation via the endocardial access. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 14 consecutive patients with 14 APs connecting the RAA and the RV managed by 15 procedures between January 2003 and December 2014...

BACKGROUND: Adenosine can unmask dormant pulmonary vein conduction after isolation. The role of adenosine in uncovering dormant accessory pathway (AP) conduction after AP ablation is unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS: We evaluated 109 consecutive patients (age, 41 ± 28 years; 62 [57%] men) who were administered adenosine after successful AP ablation. Dormant AP conduction was defined as adenosine-induced recurrent AP conduction, as demonstrated by recurrent preexcitation or change in retrograde ventriculoatrial activation patterns...

An electrophysiologic study (EPS) of children and teenagers with paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) and normal electrocardiography (ECG) in sinus rhythm was evaluated. Generally, EPS is performed only before paroxysmal SVT ablation in these patients. In this study, 140 patients (mean age, 15 ± 3 years) with normal ECG in sinus rhythm were studied for SVT by a transesophageal route in baseline state and after isoproterenol. Idiopathic left or right ventricular tachycardia was diagnosed in four patients (3 %)...

A 36 year-old man with Wolff Parkinson White syndrome due to a left-sided accessory pathway (AP) was referred for catheter ablation. Whether abolition of antegrade and retrograde AP conduction during ablation therapy occurs simultaneously, is unclear. At the ablation procedure, radiofrequency delivery resulted in loss of preexcitation followed by a short run of orthodromic tachycardia with eccentric atrial activation, demonstrating persistence of retrograde conduction over the AP after abolition of its antegrade conduction...

INTRODUCTION: This is a rare case of antidromic reciprocating tachycardia developing 8 years after successful catheter ablation. RESULT: A 15-year-old girl had recurrence of palpitations 8 years after the ablation of manifest right posteroseptal accessory pathway. Atrial burst pacing revealed Wenckebach atrioventricular conduction with preexcitation. Wide QRS tachycardia with identical morphology to sinus rhythm associated with retrograde His potential recorded immediately after the V-wave was induced by isoproterenol infusion...

BACKGROUND: Patients with an accessory pathway (AP) have an increased propensity to develop atrial fibrillation (AF), but the mechanism is unknown. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to identify crucial risk factors and to test the hypothesis that reflection and/or microreentry of atrial impulses propagating into the AP triggers AF. METHODS: Five hundred thirty-four patients successfully treated with radiofrequency ablation of AP at two university hospitals were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is a common tachyarrhythmia among pediatric patients. Usually, non-preexcited SVT is attributable to either atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia (AVNRT) or unidirectional retrograde accessory pathway (URAP), but these cannot be differentiated on a baseline electrocardiogram (ECG). The ability to identify the SVT mechanism in children may guide decision-making about treatment and counseling regarding electrophysiology study (EPS). Clinical experience suggested that ectopic atrial rhythm (EAR) is more frequently observed on preablation ECGs of pediatric patients with AVNRT...

We describe the case of a 56-year-old woman referred for electrophysiological (EP) testing for medically refractory supraventricular arrhythmias. During the EP study, the patient was found to have a right free wall atriofasicular (Mahaim type) accessory pathway and an inducible left bundle morphology preexcited tachycardia secondary to antidromic reciprocating tachycardia. The patient also had an inducible narrow complex orthodromic reciprocating tachycardia (ORT). Mapping revealed that the earliest site of retrograde atrial activation during ORT was along the lateral tricuspid annulus...

BACKGROUND: We sought to evaluate the influence of atrio-ventricular reentrant tachycardia (AVRT) on atrial pressures during tachycardia and the presence of atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with preexcitation syndrome. METHODS: The study population consisted of 88 patients (37 females, mean age 37.3 years) with left-sided accessory pathway and AVRT induced during electrophysiologic study. The AF-inducible group consisted of 32 patients with sustained episodes of AF provoked during electrophysiologic study, whereas the noninducible group comprised 56 patients without AF...

Accessory pathways with anterograde decremental conduction properties usually are characterized by presence of antegrade preexcitation during atrial pacing. We report a 38-year-old man with frequent episodes of palpitation. No evidence of ventricular preexcitation was seen during sinus rhythm or atrial pacing. All electrophysiologic maneuvers were compatible with an antidromic tachycardia using atriofascicular pathway as the antegrade limb and the atrioventricular nodal pathway as retrograde limb. Radiofrequency ablation at recording site of accessory pathway potential resulted in cure of tachycardia with no recurrence during 3-month follow-up...

We report a 26-year-old woman with frequent episodes of palpitation and dizziness. Resting electrocardiography showed no evidence of ventricular preexcitation. During electrophysiologic study, a concealed right posteroseptal accessory pathway was detected and orthodromic atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia incorporating this pathway as a retrograde limb was reproducibly induced. After successful ablation of right posteroseptal accessory pathway, another tachycardia was induced using a concealed right posterolateral accessory pathway in tachycardia circuit...

We present a case of a 15-year old girl in whom supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) with rSr' pattern in lead V1 and the QRS width of less than 110 ms, suggesting typical slow-fast AVNRT, was the presenting arrhythmia. During sinus rhythm no preexcitation was observed. Considerable variability of the tachycardia cycle length (240-370 ms), attributable to the presence of the fast and slow nodal pathways, was also observed. However, during the electrophysiological study only orthodromic atrio-ventricular reciprocating tachycardia with the left-sided superior accessory pathway as the retrograde limb was documented...

The aim of this study was to compare the electrophysiological features of tachycardia between WPW patients with and without AF. The study population consisted of 114 patients with WPW syndrome and reciprocating tachycardia during electrophysiological study. Two groups were selected: group I with AF during the procedure(n = 42)and the control group n = 72 without AF (group II). Cycle length (V-V interval), antero A-V, retrograde V-A conduction time during tachycardia and indexes V-A/V-V were analyzed. In addition, the relation between antero-, retrograde conduction time, and V-V was evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Atrial fibrillation (AF) may cause life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias in patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. We prospectively evaluated the effects of ibutilide on the conduction system in patients with accessory pathways (AP). METHODS AND RESULTS: In part I, we gave ibutilide to 22 patients (18 men, 31+/-13 years of age) who had AF during electrophysiology study, including 6 pediatric patients </=18 years of age. Ibutilide terminated AF in 21 of 22 patients (95%) during or 8+/-5 minutes after infusion and prolonged the shortest preexcited R-R interval during AF...

AIM: Most atrioventricular accessory pathways (AV-APs) exhibit Kent bundle physiology characterized by fast and non-decremental conduction properties. In contrast, atriofascicular APs, which are only capable of reaching slow levels of long antegrade decremental conduction, are uncommon. The aim of this study was to describe antegrade and/or retrograde AV-APs with unusual decremental properties. METHODS AND RESULTS: Five patients with unusual decremental AV-APs underwent electrophysiological evaluation and radiofrequency catheter ablation for symptomatic tachycardias...

A 21-year-old woman had paroxysmal wide QRS tachycardia with a left bundle branch block configuration and a retrograde conducted P wave just behind the QRS complex. An electrophysiological study revealed antidromic atrioventricular tachycardia involving an atrioventricular connection with decremental conduction as the anterograde limb and normal atrioventricular node as the retrograde limb. During constant pacing from the high right atrium (HRA) at the cycle length (CL) of 600 ms, the QRS configurations were not identical to those during the wide QRS tachycardia or constant pacing at the CL of less than 500 ms...
