Abstract

Gender differences of supraventricular tachycardias such as atrioventricular nodal re-entry, atrioventricular re-entry, and atrial fibrillation have been reported. There is little evidence of the effect of gender on focal atrial tachycardia (FAT). The study consisted of 298 patients who were referred to this institution for radiofrequency catheter ablation of FAT from October 1992 to April 2008 and included 156 men (52%) and 142 women (48%). Men were significantly older than women (57.9 ± 18.2 vs 47.2 ± 19.0 years old, p
