Atrioventricular Nodal Reentry Tachycardia (AV Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia) Summary

Description: Abnormally rapid heartbeats caused by reentry of atrial impulse into the dual (fast and slow) pathways of ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE. The common type involves a blocked atrial impulse in the slow pathway which reenters the fast pathway in a retrograde direction and simultaneously conducts to the atria and the ventricles leading to rapid HEART RATE of 150-250 beats per minute.

Also Known As: AV Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia; Tachycardia, AV Nodal Reentrant; Tachycardia, Atrioventricular Nodal Reentry; Atrioventricular Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia
