Abstract

Previous studies in patients with antidromic reciprocating tachycardia (ART) have observed a critical anatomic requirement (> 4 cm) between an antegrade bypass tract limb and a retrograde AV nodal limb. We report two patients with ART utilizing a paraseptal accessory pathway. In both cases, a critical degree of slow conduction within the circuit provides unusual electrophysiologic substrate to overcome the expected anatomical constraints.
