Abstract

The AV nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) is one of the most common arrhythmias encountered in clinical practice. It is characterized by a constant heart rate and an on/off phenomenon. The clinical symptoms may include palpitations, anxiety, polyuria, and dyspnea. Typically, tachycardia may be disrupted by vagal maneuvers in many patients. First-line treatment of symptomatic AVNRT is radiofrequency ablation. The present article deals with the characteristics, differential diagnosis and treatment of AVNRT in the EP lab. It is the second part of a series of manuscripts which may facilitate further education in the specific field of electrophysiology.
