abstract

  • Modification of AV nodal conduction during AF by radiofrequency ablation in the posteroseptal tricuspid annulus is independent of the presence or absence of a residual slow AV nodal pathway. On the basis of these observations, the mechanism of AV nodal modification is consistent with elimination of the posterior atrionodal input.
