Asynchronous intraventricular recovery as a basis for apparent 'supernormality'

Journal of Electrocardiology
G OretoL Schamroth


Various mechanisms have been postulated for the supernormal phase of intraventricular conduction where relatively early impulses are conducted with normal intraventricular conduction and relatively late impulses with abnormal intraventricular conduction. The cases presented here illustrate how asynchronous recovery of conducting tissue may result in fortuitous momentary synchrony early on in the recovery phase with asynchronous conduction properties in the later phases of recovery. This will facilitate potential synchronous conduction early on in the cycle which would result in a normal QRS complex, and potential asynchronous conduction in the later phases which would manifest with a bundle branch block QRS complex.

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Atrial Filbrillation

Atrial fibrillation refers to the abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating of the atria. Here is the latest research.

Cardiac Conduction System

The cardiac conduction system is a specialized tract of myocardial cells responsible for maintaining normal cardiac rhythm. Discover the latest research on the cardiac conduction system here.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
