Atrioventricular junctional reentrant tachycardia utilizing multiple retrograde fibers during ablation of the slow pathway

Clinical Cardiology

This report deals with a patient with atrioventricular (AV) reentrant junctional tachycardia who, during radiofrequency ablation of her slow pathway, developed both anterior and posterior type of slow-fast atrioventricular nodal reentry; in both tachycardias different fibers were alternately utilized for retrograde conduction, thus resulting in alternating tachycardia cycle lengths. This observation provides further evidence in favor of the multifiber structure of the AV node in patients with AV reentrant junctional tachycardia.
