abstract

  • Functionally fast AV node pathways may be located in the posteroseptal right atrium, where slow pathway modification is performed. These data delineate the limitation of an anatomically guided slow pathway ablative approach and emphasize the importance of detailed mapping and localization of the retrograde fast pathway exit site before ablation. Failure to recognize the presence of posterior fast AV node pathways may account for sporadic examples of AV block, complicating posteroseptal ablation in patients with AV node reentry.
