Abstract

Background - The presence of junctional rhythm has been considered to be a sensitive marker of successful slow-pathway ablation. However, in rare cases, junctional rhythm was absent despite multiple radiofrequency applications delivered over a large area in the Koch's triangle, and successful ablation was achieved in the absence of a junctional rhythm. Methods and Results - This study included 353 patients with AV nodal reentrant tachycardia (143 men and 210 women; mean age, 50±17 years) who underwent catheter ablation of the slow pathway. Combined anatomic and electrogram approaches were used to guide ablation. Inducibility of AV nodal reentrant tachycardia was assessed after each application of radiofrequency energy. Successful sites were located in the posterior area in 18 (90%) of 20 patients without junctional rhythm during slow-pathway ablation compared with 200 (60%) of 333 patients with junctional rhythm (P
