abstract

  • We have identified a new form of reentrant tachycardia in which the AV node, HPS, and ventricular myocardium each obligatorily participates in the tachycardia circuit, with the left posterior fascicle and right bundle functioning as the anterograde and retrograde limbs, respectively. Unlike BBR, however, the His bundle is activated twice as the wavefront pivots in the AV node. This model requires longitudinal dissociation at the levels of the AV node and His bundle.
