Radiofrequency catheter ablation of left sided accessory pathways has been most commonly performed using a retrograde transaortic 3,8,9 approach.
developed an algorithm by analyzing R/S ratios in lead V1, V2 and aVF on ECGs of 142 patients with a single anterogradely conducting accessory pathway.
These patients should receive immediate electrical cardioversion and be referred for urgent ablation of the accessory pathway.
1,2] The presence of an accessory pathway (AP) between the atrial and ventricular tissue allows atrial impulses to bypass the normal conduction pathway of the heart and depolarize the ventricles early, which produces a circuit capable of sustaining tachyarrhythmias.
Digitalis and verapamil are strictly contraindicated as they suppress normal pathway and increase conduction through accessory pathway.
This is because the loss of the delta wave shows that the accessory pathway cannot conduct electrical impulses at a high rate.
Baseline electrocardiogram (ECG) revealed delta wave pattern consistent with the presence of a right sided accessory pathway (AP).
Historically, the possibility of the existence of atrioventricular accessory pathways was first raised by Stanley Kent in 1913.
of Maastricht, the Netherlands) discuss variant forms of preexcitation syndromes that are not well known, and provide variant accessory pathways, their history and anatomy.
This turf reconfiguration will likely come about due to looming technologic advances, including genomic screening for susceptibility to sudden cardiac death, noninvasive mapping of the heart to pinpoint the site of ventricular tachycardia or accessory pathways, noninvasive autonomic imaging of sympathetic enervation of the heart, and vagal imaging of the ventricle.
