Abstract

This study demonstrates that the fast-slow form of atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia is usually catecholamine-sensitive and its electrophysiologic characteristics are significantly different from those of the slow-fast form. However, radiofrequency catheter ablation is a safe and effective treatment for patients with the fast-slow form of atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia.
