Intravenous adenosine during atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia: induction of atrial fibrillation with rapid conduction over an accessory pathway



Intravenous adenosine during atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia: induction of atrial fibrillation with rapid conduction over an accessory pathway



Pacing and Clinical Electrophysiology 18(4 Pt 1): 743-746



Adenosine is considered to be a safe agent for termination of orthodromic atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia in patients with accessory pathways. A case with initially successful accessory pathway ablation and without preexcitation during sinus rhythm is presented, in which intravenous adenosine (6 mg) during orthodromic tachycardia was followed by atrial fibrillation and sudden onset of preexcitation with subsequent rapid ventricular response with moderate hemodynamic compromise.
