Résumé
Atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia has been recognized for many years as a very common cause of supraventricular tachycardia. First curable by surgery, this tachycardia is now successfully approached by selective radiofrequency current application to the slow pathway of the reentrant circuit. Importantly, these curative treatments brought evidence that the reentrant circuit of this arrhythmia was not confined to the compact atrioventricular (AV) node. These findings stimulate anatomists and basic and clinical electrophysiologists to fundamentally reconsider the atrioventricular junction in order to better understand the mysteries of atrioventricular junctional reentrant tachycardia, as we still do not know exactly what we are doing in AV node region procedures. This article will focus on the different hypotheses regarding the effect of selective slow AV pathway ablation in AV junctional reentrant tachycardia.
