Abstract

Background: This study aimed to investigate the impact of aging on electrophysiological characteristics in patients with atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia (AVNRT). Methods and Results: The 2,111 patients who underwent an electrophysiological study and radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation of AVNRT were enrolled. The patients were divided into 4 groups according to age (group 1:
