Tachycardia, Atrioventricular Nodal Reentry
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.
Bundle of His
Small band of specialized CARDIAC MUSCLE fibers that originates in the ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE and extends into the membranous part of the interventricular septum. The bundle of His, consisting of the left and the right bundle branches, conducts the electrical impulses to the HEART VENTRICLES in generation of MYOCARDIAL CONTRACTION.
Heart Conduction System
The small mass of modified cardiac muscle fibers located at the junction of the superior vena cava (VENA CAVA, SUPERIOR) and right atrium. Contraction impulses probably start in this node, spread over the atrium (HEART ATRIUM) and are then transmitted by the atrioventricular bundle (BUNDLE OF HIS) to the ventricle (HEART VENTRICLE).
Impaired conduction of cardiac impulse that can occur anywhere along the conduction pathway, such as between the SINOATRIAL NODE and the right atrium (SA block) or between atria and ventricles (AV block). Heart blocks can be classified by the duration, frequency, or completeness of conduction block. Reversibility depends on the degree of structural or functional defects.
Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.
Cardiac Pacing, Artificial
Recording of the moment-to-moment electromotive forces of the HEART as projected onto various sites on the body's surface, delineated as a scalar function of time. The recording is monitored by a tracing on slow moving chart paper or by observing it on a cardioscope, which is a CATHODE RAY TUBE DISPLAY.
Electrophysiologic Techniques, Cardiac
A form of ventricular pre-excitation characterized by a short PR interval and a long QRS interval with a delta wave. In this syndrome, atrial impulses are abnormally conducted to the HEART VENTRICLES via an ACCESSORY CONDUCTING PATHWAY that is located between the wall of the right or left atria and the ventricles, also known as a BUNDLE OF KENT. The inherited form can be caused by mutation of PRKAG2 gene encoding a gamma-2 regulatory subunit of AMP-activated protein kinase.
Tachycardia, Ectopic Junctional
A rare form of supraventricular tachycardia caused by automatic, not reentrant, conduction initiated from sites at the atrioventricular junction, but not the ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE. It usually occurs during myocardial infarction, after heart surgery, or in digitalis intoxication with a HEART RATE ranging from 140 to 250 beats per minute.
Abnormal cardiac rhythm that is characterized by rapid, uncoordinated firing of electrical impulses in the upper chambers of the heart (HEART ATRIA). In such case, blood cannot be effectively pumped into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES). It is caused by abnormal impulse generation.
Procedures using an electrically heated wire or scalpel to treat hemorrhage (e.g., bleeding ulcers) and to ablate tumors, mucosal lesions, and refractory arrhythmias. It is different from ELECTROSURGERY which is used more for cutting tissue than destroying and in which the patient is part of the electric circuit.
Sick Sinus Syndrome
A condition caused by dysfunctions related to the SINOATRIAL NODE including impulse generation (CARDIAC SINUS ARREST) and impulse conduction (SINOATRIAL EXIT BLOCK). It is characterized by persistent BRADYCARDIA, chronic ATRIAL FIBRILLATION, and failure to resume sinus rhythm following CARDIOVERSION. This syndrome can be congenital or acquired, particularly after surgical correction for heart defects.
Rapid, irregular atrial contractions caused by a block of electrical impulse conduction in the right atrium and a reentrant wave front traveling up the inter-atrial septum and down the right atrial free wall or vice versa. Unlike ATRIAL FIBRILLATION which is caused by abnormal impulse generation, typical atrial flutter is caused by abnormal impulse conduction. As in atrial fibrillation, patients with atrial flutter cannot effectively pump blood into the lower chambers of the heart (HEART VENTRICLES).
Refractory Period, Electrophysiological
The period of time following the triggering of an ACTION POTENTIAL when the CELL MEMBRANE has changed to an unexcitable state and is gradually restored to the resting (excitable) state. During the absolute refractory period no other stimulus can trigger a response. This is followed by the relative refractory period during which the cell gradually becomes more excitable and the stronger impulse that is required to illicit a response gradually lessens to that required during the resting state.
A diverticulum from the fourth pharyngeal pouch of an embryo, regarded by some as a rudimentary fifth pharyngeal pouch and by others as a lateral thyroid primordium. The ultimobranchial bodies of lower vertebrates contain large amounts of calcitonin. In mammals the bodies fuse with the thyroid gland and are thought to develop into the parafollicular cells. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Tachycardia, Ectopic Atrial
Abnormally rapid heartbeats originating from one or more automatic foci (nonsinus pacemakers) in the HEART ATRIUM but away from the SINOATRIAL NODE. Unlike the reentry mechanism, automatic tachycardia speeds up and slows down gradually. The episode is characterized by a HEART RATE between 135 to less than 200 beats per minute and lasting 30 seconds or longer.
The 10th cranial nerve. The vagus is a mixed nerve which contains somatic afferents (from skin in back of the ear and the external auditory meatus), visceral afferents (from the pharynx, larynx, thorax, and abdomen), parasympathetic efferents (to the thorax and abdomen), and efferents to striated muscle (of the larynx and pharynx).
Electromagnetic waves with frequencies between about 3 kilohertz (very low frequency - VLF) and 300,000 megahertz (extremely high frequency - EHF). They are used in television and radio broadcasting, land and satellite communications systems, radionavigation, radiolocation, and DIATHERMY. The highest frequency radio waves are MICROWAVES.
Agents used for the treatment or prevention of cardiac arrhythmias. They may affect the polarization-repolarization phase of the action potential, its excitability or refractoriness, or impulse conduction or membrane responsiveness within cardiac fibers. Anti-arrhythmia agents are often classed into four main groups according to their mechanism of action: sodium channel blockade, beta-adrenergic blockade, repolarization prolongation, or calcium channel blockade.
Body Surface Potential Mapping
Recording of regional electrophysiological information by analysis of surface potentials to give a complete picture of the effects of the currents from the heart on the body surface. It has been applied to the diagnosis of old inferior myocardial infarction, localization of the bypass pathway in Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, recognition of ventricular hypertrophy, estimation of the size of a myocardial infarct, and the effects of different interventions designed to reduce infarct size. The limiting factor at present is the complexity of the recording and analysis, which requires 100 or more electrodes, sophisticated instrumentation, and dedicated personnel.

Lymph Node Excision
Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy
A comparison of an A1 adenosine receptor agonist (CVT-510) with diltiazem for slowing of AV nodal conduction in guinea-pig. (1/783)1. The purpose of this study was to compare the pharmacological properties (i.e. the AV nodal depressant, vasodilator, and inotropic effects) of two AV nodal blocking agents belonging to different drug classes; a novel A1 adenosine receptor (A1 receptor) agonist, N-(3(R)-tetrahydrofuranyl)-6-aminopurine riboside (CVT-510), and the prototypical calcium channel blocker diltiazem. 2. In the atrial-paced isolated heart, CVT-510 was approximately 5 fold more potent to prolong the stimulus-to-His bundle (S-H interval), a measure of slowing AV nodal conduction (EC50 = 41 nM) than to increase coronary conductance (EC50 = 200 nM). At concentrations of CVT-510 (40 nM) and diltiazem (1 microM) that caused equal prolongation of S-H interval (approximately 10 ms), diltiazem, but not CVT-510, significantly reduced left ventricular developed pressure (LVP) and markedly increased coronary conductance. CVT-510 shortened atrial (EC50 = 73 nM) but not the ventricular monophasic action potentials (MAP). 3. In atrial-paced anaesthetized guinea-pigs, intravenous infusions of CVT-510 and diltiazem caused nearly equal prolongations of P-R interval. However, diltiazem, but not CVT-510, significantly reduced mean arterial blood pressure. 4. Both CVT-510 and diltiazem prolonged S-H interval, i.e., slowed AV nodal conduction. However, the A1 receptor-selective agonist CVT-510 did so without causing the negative inotropic, vasodilator, and hypotensive effects associated with diltiazem. Because CVT-510 did not affect the ventricular action potential, it is unlikely that this agonist will have a proarrythmic action in ventricular myocardium. (+info)
Modulation of AV nodal and Hisian conduction by changes in extracellular space. (2/783)Previous studies have demonstrated that the extracellular space (ECS) component of the atrioventricular (AV) node and His bundle region is larger than the ECS in adjacent contractile myocardium. The potential physiological significance of this observation was examined in a canine blood-perfused AV nodal preparation. Mannitol, an ECS osmotic expander, was infused directly into either the AV node or His bundle region. This resulted in a significant dose-dependent increase in the AV nodal or His-ventricular conduction time and in the AV nodal effective refractory period. Mannitol infusion eventually resulted in Wenckebach block (n = 6), which reversed with mannitol washout. The ratio of AV nodal to left ventricular ECS in tissue frozen immediately on the development of heart block (n = 8) was significantly higher in the region of block (4.53 +/- 0.61) compared with that in control preparations (2.23 +/- 0.35, n = 6, P < 0.01) and donor dog hearts (2.45 +/- 0.18, n = 11, P < 0.01) not exposed to mannitol. With lower mannitol rates (10% of total blood flow), AV nodal conduction times increased by 5-10% and the AV node became supersensitive to adenosine, acetylcholine, and carbachol, but not to norepinephrine. We conclude that mannitol-induced changes in AV node and His bundle ECS markedly alter conduction system electrophysiology and the sensitivity of conductive tissues to purinergic and cholinergic agonists.

Ventricular excitation maps using tissue Doppler acceleration imaging: potential clinical application. (3/783)OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study is to validate the use of tissue Doppler acceleration imaging (TDAI) for evaluation of the onset of ventricular contraction in humans. BACKGROUND: Tissue Doppler acceleration imaging can display the distribution, direction and value of ventricular acceleration responses to myocardial contraction and electrical excitation. METHODS: Twenty normal volunteers underwent TDAI testing to determine the normal onset of ventricular acceleration. Two patients with paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia and 30 patients with permanent pacemakers underwent introduction of esophageal and right ventricular pacing electrodes, respectively, and were studied to visualize the onset of pacer-induced ventricular acceleration. Eight patients with dual atrioventricular (AV) node and 20 patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome underwent TDAI testing to localize the abnormal onset of ventricular acceleration, and the results were compared with those of intracardiac electrophysiology (ICEP) tests. RESULTS: The normal onset and the onset of dual AV node were localized at the upper interventricular septum (IVS) under the right coronary cusp within 25 ms before the beginning of the R wave in the electrocardiogram (ECG). In all patients in the pacing group, the location and timing of the onset conformed to the positions and timing of electrodes (100%). In patients with WPW syndrome, abnormal onset was localized to portions of the ventricular wall other than the upper IVS at the delta wave or within 25 ms after the delta wave in the ECG. The agreement was 90% (18 of 20) between the abnormal onset and the position of the accessory pathways determined by ICEP testing. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that TDAI is a useful noninvasive method that frequently is successful in visualizing the intramural site of origin of ventricular mechanical contraction. (+info)
Anatomical study of truncus arteriousus communis with embryological and surgical considerations. (4/783)Twelve specimens of truncus arteriosus communis have been studied anatomically, with special reference to the conal anatomy and to the associated cardiac anomalies which can create additional problems if surgical repair is planned. A wide spectrum of conal morphology has been observed, suggesting that differential conal absorption is a developmental characteristic of truncus arteriousus as well as of transposition complexes. The invariable absence of septation of the ventricular infundibula and semilunar valves, in spite of the variable anatomy of the free wall of the conus, indicates that all types of truncus arteriosus, ontogenetically, should be considered as a single undivided conotruncus. Various types of ventircular septal defect were found: (a) ventricular septal defect with absent crista, in which no remnants of conal septum are present; (b) supracristal ventricular septal defect, in which vestigial conal septum is seen in front of the membranous septum; (c) bulloventricular foramen, associated with univentricular origin of the truncus from the right ventricle. Frequent associated anomalies are underdevelopment of the aortic arch, truncal valve malformations, and obstructive ventricular septal defect. The AV conduction system studied in one case showed an arrangement similar to Fallot's tetralogy with the His bundle and the left bundle-branch in a safe position behind the posteroinferior rim of the defect. The postoperative fate of the frequently abnormal truncal valve and the theoretical indications for total repair for Type IV truncus are also discussed. (+info)
Electrophysiological effects of mexiletine in man. (5/783)The electrophysiological effects of intravenous mexiletine in a dose of 200 to 250 mg given over 5 minutes, followed by continuous infusion of 60 to 90 mg per hour, were studied in 5 patients with normal conduction and in 20 patients with a variety of disturbances of impulse formation and conduction, by means of His bundle electrography, atrial pacing, and the extrastimulus method. In all but 2 patients the plasma level was above the lower therapeutic limit. Mexiletine had no consistent effects on sinus frequency and atrial refractoriness. The sinoatrial recovery time changed inconsistently in both directions; however, of the 5 patients in whom an increase was evident, 3 had sinus node dysfunction. In most patients mexiletine increased the AV nodal conduction time at paced atrial rates and shifted the Wenckebach point to a lower atrial rate. The effective refractory period of the AV node was not consistently influenced, while the functional refractory period increased in 12 out of 14 patients. The HV intervals increased by a mean of 11 ms in 8 patients and were unchanged in 17. Both the relative and effective refractory period of the His-Purkinje system increased after mexiletine. Non-cardiac side effects occurred in 7 out of 25 patients, and cardiac side effects, including one serious, in 2. The results indicate that mexiletine shares some electrophysiological properties with procainamide and quinidine, when given to patients with conduction defects, and that the drug should not be used in patients with pre-existing impairment of impulse formation or conduction. It has additional effects on AV nodal conduction which may be of value in the treatment of re-entrant tachycardias involving the AV node. (+info)
Monophasic action potentials of right atrium and electrophysiological properties of AV conducting system in patients with hypothyroidism. (6/783)In 12 patients with manifest hypothyroidism right atrial monophasic action potentials showed a significant prolongation in comparison with data from normal or euthyroid patients. Atrial effective refractory periods were also significantly prolonged. After thyroid treatment the monophasic action potential duration and the effective refractory period of the right atrium were within normal ranges. In 6 hypothyroid patients studies of AV conduction with the aid of His bundle electrography and atrial pacing showed a supraHisian conduction delay which was manifest in one case and latent in another two. InfraHisian conduction delay was encountered in 2 cases. (+info)
The nerve supply and conducting system of the human heart at the end of the embryonic period proper. (7/783)The nerve supply and conducting system were studied in a stage 23 human embryo of exceptional histological quality. The nerves on the right side arose from cervical sympathetic and from cervical and thoracic vagal filaments. Out of their interconnexions vagoxympathetic nerves emerged, which (1) sent a branch in front of the trachea to the aorticopulmonary ganglion, thereby supplying arterial and venous structures, and (2) formed the right sinal nerve, which supplied the sinu-atrial node, and gave filaments to the interatrial septum which could be traced to the atrioventricular node and pulmonary veins. The nerves on the left side arose similarly from cervical sympathetic and from cervical and thoracic vagal filaments. These formed several descending, ganglionated, vagosympathetic filaments that descended to the right of the arch of the aorta and entered the aorticopulmonary ganglion. Filaments leaving the ganglion supplied the pulmonary trunk, ascending aorta, interatrial septum, pulmonary veins, and, as the left sinal nerve, the fold of the left vena cava. The thoracic vagal filaments descended to the left of the arch of the aorta and supplied chiefly the arterial end of the heart. No thoracic sympathetic cardiac filaments were found. The sinu-atrial node began as a crescentic mass in front of the lower part of the superior vena cava. It gradually extended on each side of the superior vena cava and came to form its posterior wall at a more caudal level. The atrial myocardium that formed the septum spurium, venous valves, and interatrial septum could be traced from the sinu-atrial to the atrioventricular node. Myocardium also encircled the atrial aspects of the atrioventricular orifices, and could be traced caudally to the atrioventricular nde. The atrioventricular node was a conspicuous mass in the anterior and lower part of the interatrial septum, from which a clearly defined bundle left to enter the interventricular septum. Right and left limbs were observed, the former being a rounded bundle that passed immediately in front of the root of the aorta. (+info)
Atrioventricular nodal conduction during atrial fibrillation: role of atrial input modification. (8/783)BACKGROUND: Posteroseptal ablation of the atrioventricular node (AVN) has been proposed as a means to slow the ventricular rate during atrial fibrillation (AF). The suggested mechanism is elimination of the AVN "slow pathway." On the basis of the unpredictable success of the procedure, we hypothesize that, in fact, the slow pathway is preserved. Therefore, the slowing of the ventricular rate results from reduced bombardment of the AVN. METHODS AND RESULTS: In 8 rabbit heart atrial-AVN preparations, cooling of the posterior and/or the anterior AVN approaches revealed nonspecific effects on the slow and fast pathway portions of the AVN conduction curve. In 13 other preparations, simulated AF during posterior cooling (n=6) prolonged the His-His (H-H) intervals but did not reveal specific slow pathway injury. In the remaining 7 preparations, AF was applied before and after posteroseptal surgical cuts. During AF with posterior origin, the cuts resulted in longer mean H-H along with slowing of the AVN bombardment rate. However, there was no change in the minimum observed H-H, suggesting an intact slow pathway. During AF with anterior origin, the mean and the shortest H-H remained unchanged before and after the cuts in all preparations. This was associated with the maintenance of high-rate AVN bombardment. CONCLUSIONS: Posteroseptal ablation does not eliminate the slow pathway. Ventricular rate slowing can be obtained if the ablation procedure results in a posteroanterior intra-atrial block leading to a reduction of the rate of AV nodal bombardment. (+info)
Developmental Origin, Growth, and Three-Dimensional Architecture of the Atrioventricular Conduction Axis of the Mouse...
Several features remained to be clarified concerning the developmental origin of the atrioventricular conduction axis. For example, is the embryonic atrioventricular canal the major source of the atrial part of the conduction axis,10,11,13 or are major contributions made by adjacent tissues, such as the atrial chamber myocardium, the left sinus horn, the dorsal mesenchymal protrusion, or the atrioventricular bundle?15,17,-,20 What are the lineage origins of the atrial and ventricular parts of the axis, respectively?19,20 By our use of genetic lineage tracing, we have excluded the notion that contributions to the atrial part of the axis are made from the sinus horns or the epicardium (Tbx18+), from the ventricular myocardium, including the atrioventricular bundle, or from the dorsal mesenchymal protrusion (Mef2c-AHF-Cre+). The majority of the atrial components is derived from the embryonic atrioventricular canal, except for the lower nodal cells, which are derived from the embryonic ventricular ...
Swine Atrioventricular Node Ablation Using Stereotactic Radiosurgery: Methods and In Vivo Feasibility Investigation for...
In this study we have demonstrated the feasibility of SRS for AV node ablation in an intact porcine model, and, to our knowledge, we are the third group to use radiation therapy for AV node ablation.4 Sharma et al attempted AV node ablation in 2 pigs: 1 procedure was successful with 70‐Gy ablation, whereas the other failed due to pacemaker infection.4 In our study we used doses of 35 to 40 Gy to successfully achieve complete heart blocks in 5 pigs. The pig in the Sharma et al study had AV node conduction changes earlier than 35 days after the procedure, which is likely related to the higher dose of radiation used. Our study is significant in that we demonstrated complete heart block in 5 pigs with a lower dose of radiation. Another group from the Mayo Clinic published their data recently in April 2017 on the external arrhythmia ablation using photon beams and achieved 86% success in achieving complete heart block in an intact animal model with a dose deescalation from 55 to 25 Gy.5 Our study ...
Intraoperative recording of specialized atrioventricular conduction tissue electrograms in 47 patients. | Circulation
Intraoperative mapping of the specialized atrioventricular conduction system was performed in 47 patients during cardiac surgery. Specialized conduction tissue electrograms were identified in 37, and atrioventricular conduction preserved in 92%. Specialized conduction tissue was identified in 27 patients with atrioventricular canal defect: complete heart block was avoided in 25. Conduction tissue was located in six of 12 patients with complex transpositions; atrioventricular conduction was preserved in all six. Other lesions in which the technique was useful were Ebsteins anomaly and single atrium. Limitations to the technique are 1) deep hypothermia and circulatory arrest; 2) interruption in atrioventricular conduction during mapping; 3) inadequate exposure and access to probable sites of conduction tissue; 4) variation of size and spatial relations of individual malformations; and 5) limited time for identification of unusually located conduction tissue. Indications for use of this technique ...
Impact of Transforming Growth Factor-β1 on Atrioventricular Node Conduction Modification by Injected Autologous Fibroblasts in...
In the present study, fibroblasts could be strategically injected into the atrium through the use of a percutaneous approach. These cells, identified 4 weeks later, were localized within injection lines in the expected anatomic targets. Fibroblast injections, with or without TGF-β1, modified cardiac electrophysiological properties of the AV node without creation of high-grade block. Although TGF-β1 alone did not significantly affect AV node conduction, pretreatment of fibroblasts with TGF-β1 significantly decrease AV nodal conduction, suggesting that this growth factor works through the fibroblast cell line.. The use of fibroblasts as a cell-based therapy in the treatment of burns, skin diseases, and head and neck tumors is well established.21-23 In these cases, the cells are used to replace damaged or injured tissue or to occupy space after tumor resection. In general, fibroblasts engraft well after implantation in noncardiac tissue, with minimal toxic degradation or inflammatory reactions. ...
AV Node Ablation
AV node ablation is a procedure used to correct irregular heartbeats by destroying the tissue within the AV node. AV node ablation is used to correct arrhythmias that begin in the upper chambers of the heart (called the atria), such as atrial fibrillation or incessant atrial arrhythmias not amenable to direct arrhythmia ablation. To perform this procedure, a catheter is threaded into the atria of the heart and the tip is guided to the AV node. The catheter then emits a pulse of high-energy electricity that destroys part of the AV node. This prevents signals from the atria from reaching the ventricles. Since the AV node is no longer functional, a pacemaker is then inserted to regulate the heartbeat.. ...

Atrioventricular node - wikidoc
The AV node receives two inputs from the atria: posteriorly via the crista terminalis, and anteriorly via the interatrial septum. An important property that is unique to the AV node is decremental conduction, in which the more frequently the node is stimulated, the slower it conducts. This is the property of the AV node that prevents rapid conduction to the ventricle in cases of rapid atrial rhythms, such as atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter. The atrioventricular node delays impulses for ~0.1 second before allowing impulses through to the His-Purkinje conduction system, which spreads impulses to the ventricular walls. The reason it is important to delay the cardiac impulse is to ensure that the atria have ejected their blood into the ventricles before the ventricles contract. ...
Fatal Lyme carditis and endodermal heterotopia of the atrioventricular node. - Prohealth
A fatal case of Lyme carditis occurring in a Suffolk farmworker is reported. Post-mortem examination of the heart showed pericarditis, focal myocarditis and prominent endocardial and interstitial fibrosis. The additional finding of endodermal heterotopia (mesothelioma) of the atrioventricular node raises the possibility that this could also be related to Lyme infection and account for the relatively frequent occurrence of atrioventricular block in this condition. Lyme disease should always be considered in a case of atrioventricular block, particularly in a young patient from a rural area. The heart block tends to improve and therefore only temporary pacing may be required.

Dr. Smiths ECG Blog: Wide Complex Tachycardia
The second mechanism applies in this case: Look at the first two ECGs above (those with abnormal conduction). Notice that the R-wave in V1 is very large, as it would be in RBBB. This is because the impulse is going down a left lateral bypass tract and then proceeding through the myocardium from left to right, resulting in a large R-wave in V1. Thus, the bypass tract (accessory pathway) is to the left lateral of the left atrium, which is far from the sinus node (right part of right atrium). When the AV node is conducting fast (such as with anxiety, low vagal tone, high catecholamines, etc.), then the impulse gets to and through the AV node and through the Purkinje system before it makes it down the accessory pathway and therefore there is no (or minimal) delta wave. On the other hand, if the AV node conduction is slower, then the delta waves will be evident ...
Dromotropic - Wikipedia
Dromotropic derives from the Greek word dromos, meaning running, a course, a race. A dromotropic agent is one which affects the conduction speed in the AV node, and subsequently the rate of electrical impulses in the heart. Agents that are dromotropic are often (but not always) inotropic and chronotropic. For instance, parasympathetic stimulation is usually negatively chronotropic and dromotropic, but because the vagus nerve does not innervate ventricular myocardium has no effect on inotropy. Non-dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers such as verapamil block the slow inward calcium current in cardiac tissues, thereby having a negatively dromotropic, chronotropic and inotropic effect. This (and other) pharmacological effect makes these drugs useful in the treatment of angina pectoris. Conversely, they can lead to symptomatic disturbances in cardiac conduction and bradyarrhythmias, and may aggravate left ventricular failure.

The Development of the Atrioventricular Junction in the Human Heart | Circulation Research
One of the intriguing aspects of cardiac development is the manner in which the tubular embryonic myocardium, functioning initially as a fingerpump without one-way valves, eventually transforms into the complex adult four-chambered pump with a well-developed valvar apparatus and fibrous skeleton, capable of supporting two separate blood circulations after birth. In earlier studies, we have demonstrated how the processes responsible for this transformation-such as ventricular septation, the development of the atrioventricular valves, and the development of the atrioventricular conduction system-are closely related to one another.1 2 3 4 5 In this contribution, we focus on the morphological events producing the necessary insulation of the atrial from the ventricular myocardium. It is well established that during early cardiac development the ordinary atrial myocardium is continuous with myocardium of the ventricles throughout the atrioventricular junction.2 6 7 At these stages, the physical ...

To demonstrate this potential, clusters of contracting cardiomyocytes isolated from the differentiation cultures were transplanted into the left ventricle of pigs that had their atrioventricular node ablated. The recipient hearts had spontaneous rhythms that appeared to originate from the transplanted cells as assessed by high-resolution electroanatomical mapping. Though promising, these results also raise the concern that transplanted cells could serve as a nidus for arrhythmia. Other mesoderm-derived lineages. While the hematopoietic, vascular, and cardiac lineages have been studied in most detail, the ES cell system does offer the potential to develop many other mesoderm lineages. To date, cell populations representing the skeletal muscle (Rohwedel et al. 1994 ...

Patente US7218965 - Preferred ADI/R: a permanent pacing mode to eliminate ventricular pacing ... - Google Patentes
An ADI/R mode is implemented using an intelligent pacing system to continually monitor ventricular response. This ensures AV conduction whenever possible so as to gain all the benefits of cardiac contractile properties resulting from native R-waves. In the event where AV conduction is blocked, the pacing mode is switched to a DDD/R mode to ensure a paced R-wave. Thereafter, subsequent to a completed interval of a P-wave, ADI/R pacing resumes to monitor ventricular response.

Kochs Snowflake Investigation - GCSE Maths - Marked by Teachers.com
I will now investigate how the area increases with each shape. Instead of working out the area of each shape in cm³, I will count the number of triangles in each shape, as this is more efficient. In the first snowflake (see back of project) there were 81 triangles. The sides of the whole triangular shape are each 9 centimetres long, the area of one of the triangles can be found by squaring the length of one side ( 9 ² = 81).. I will calculate the area of each snowflake by breaking it down into individual triangle shapes. For example, shape 2 consists of one large triangle, from shape 1, and three new, smaller triangles:. The area of shape 2 can therefore be calculated by: area of large triangle + ( 3 × area of small triangle).. In order to work out the area in this manner, I will have to first work out the area of each triangle added on and the amount of triangles added on with each shape.. This table shows how the area of each small triangle decreases with each shape: ...

Atrioventricular Conduction Disturbance Revealing Cardiac Amyloidosis in Young Adults: A Report of Two Cases | SciFed Journal...
The cause of the electrocardiographic abnormalities in amyloidosis is a matter of controversy despite attempts of clinicopathological correlation. Detailed correlative studies of the involvement of cardiac conduction system in amyloidosis are few and have produced conflicting results. Some authors favour the hypothesis that infiltration of the conducting system by amyloid deposits is the main reason for the disturbances of conduction . In familial amyloidosis with polyneuropathy, amyloid infiltration of the sinus node and atrioventricular conduction system is now well documented, and this seems to account for the majority of the electrophysiological disturbances of these regions [20, 21, 22].The distribution and extent of heart infiltration by amyloid are not, however, uniform. On the other hand, other authors have concluded that direct infiltration by amyloid is of lesser importance . Autonomous neuropathy due to amyloid may also contribute to the electrophysiological disturbances. In ...
Invasive electrophysiology|br|Atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia triggering atrial fibrillation – a case report...
We describe a case of an otherwise healthy 50-year-old man with frequent attacks of heart palpitations. During electrophysiological study two episodes of atrial fibrillation (AF) were induced. In both cases AF was preceded by a few seconds of atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT). Ablation of atrioventricular node slow pathway successfully eliminated both tachyarrhythmias during 6 months follow-up. Since during AVNRT a few short coupled atrial ectopic beats appeared, we hypothesized that AVNRT did not trigger AF directly but by inducing ectopic beats form a pulmonary vein or an atrial focus that became a direct trigger of AF ...

Visualization and functional characterization of the developing murine cardiac conduction system | Development
The cardiac conduction system is a complex network of cells that together orchestrate the rhythmic and coordinated depolarization of the heart. The molecular mechanisms regulating the specification and patterning of cells that form this conductive network are largely unknown. Studies in avian models have suggested that components of the cardiac conduction system arise from progressive recruitment of cardiomyogenic progenitors, potentially influenced by inductive effects from the neighboring coronary vasculature. However, relatively little is known about the process of conduction system development in mammalian species, especially in the mouse, where even the histological identification of the conductive network remains problematic. We have identified a line of transgenic mice where lacZ reporter gene expression delineates the developing and mature murine cardiac conduction system, extending proximally from the sinoatrial node to the distal Purkinje fibers. Optical mapping of cardiac electrical ...

Transient complete heart block - Doctors answer your questions
Transient complete heart block - What is complete heart block? Heart block. Third-degree atrioventricular block or complete heart block, is a disorder of the cardiac conduction system where there is no conduction through the atrioventricular node. Therefore, complete dissociation of the atrial and ventricular activity exists. It results from various pathologic states causing infiltration, fibrosis, or loss of connection in portions of the healthy conduction system.

Electrocardiographic Imaging of Ventricular Bigeminy in a Human Subject | Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology
Here we apply noninvasive electrocardiographic imaging (ECGI)3 to image ventricular epicardial activation during bigeminy in a patient with atrial fibrillation who underwent atrioventricular node ablation and pacemaker implantation in the right ventricular apex (asterisk in anterior view). ECGI is a functional imaging modality that combines 250 body-surface ECGs with thoracic computed tomography.3,4 By using inverse reconstruction algorithms, ECGI noninvasively generates electroanatomic maps on the epicardial surface of the heart. After extensive validation, it has been applied in human subjects with various cardiac electrophysiological conditions.5-8. The Figure (A) shows the sequence of ventricular activation during bigeminy. The top row demonstrates the regular paced beat, with wavefront propagation from the pacing site to the rest of the heart over a duration of 160 ms because of slow activation in the absence of conduction system participation. The bottom row shows activation during the ...
The Maze procedure: Surgical therapy for refractory atrial fibrillation | Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine
AbstractAlthough atrial fibrillation is well tolerated by most patients, in some patients the consequences may be severe. The Maze procedure is a new open-heart operation that creates a carefully designed maze of incisions in the atrial myocardium; this maze then acts as an electrical conduit to channel atrial impulses from the sinoatrial node to the atrioventricular node. The Maze procedure has been shown to restore sinus rhythm and atrial systole (thus reducing the risk of thromboembolism), improve hemodynamics, alleviate palpitations, and eliminate the need for antiarrhythmic and anticoagulant drugs. We describe our first patient to undergo this operation.

Macrophages facilitate electrical conduction in the heart
Organ-specific functions of tissue-resident macrophages in the steady-state heart are unknown. Here, we show that cardiac macrophages facilitate electrical conduction through the distal atrioventricular node, where conducting cells densely intersperse with elongated macrophages expressing connexin 43. When coupled to spontaneously beating cardiomyocytes via connexin-43-containing gap junctions, cardiac macrophages have a negative resting membrane potential and depolarize in synchrony with cardiomyocytes. Conversely, macrophages render the resting membrane potential of cardiomyocytes more positive and, according to computational modeling, accelerate their repolarization. Photostimulation of channelrhodopsin-2-expressing macrophages improves atrioventricular conduction, whereas conditional deletion of connexin 43 in macrophages and congenital lack of macrophages delay atrioventricular conduction. In the Cd11b(DTR) mouse, macrophage ablation induces progressive atrioventricular block. These ...
Guiding Cardiac Conduction With GATA | Circulation: Genomic and Precision Medicine
Despite remarkable progress in the past few years, the gene regulatory networks underlying formation and function of the cardiac conduction system (CCS) remain incompletely understood. Transcription factors such as NXK2.5 and TBX2/3/5 that control various aspects of heart development have emerged as key regulators of cardiac conduction gene expression and function. By showing alterations in the structure of the atrioventricular node (AVN) and the electrophysiological parameters of mice harboring a mutated GATA-binding factor 6 (GATA6) protein, Liu et al1 add a new player to the growing list of transcription factors involved in cardiac rhythm regulation. This finding provides insight that will help advance efforts to elucidate the pathogenesis of cardiac rhythm disturbances.. Article see p 284. In human, cardiac rhythm disturbances are a major cause of mortality and morbidity from fetal to adult life. They can develop in response to numerous conditions, such as electrolyte imbalance, ...

OBJECTIVE.: To compile a database of disc height, vertebral height and sagittal plane displacement from lateral radiographic views of the lumbar spine, valid for male and female subjects in the age range 16-57 years. The protocols used to measure these parameters compensate for distortion in central projection, off-centre position, axial rotation and lateral tilt of the spine as well as for variation in radiographic magnification and stature. STUDY DESIGN.: The study comprised designing and testing of measurement protocols, together with subsequent data collection from archive radiographs. BACKGROUND.: Attempts to quantify primary mechanical damage to lumbar vertebrae and discs have been limited due to imprecision when measuring disc height, vertebral height and sagittal plane displacement. Age-related, normative values for these parameters were not previously available. Consequently, important issues like the effectiveness of past and present guidelines for safe manual handling with respect to
Difference Between SA node and AV node | SA node vs AV node
What is the difference between SA node and AV node? SA node generates cardiac action potential while AV node receives the action potential from the SA node...
Pacemakers are sometimes recommended for people with conditions that cause the heart to beat abnormally.. Each time the heart beats, the heart muscle contracts (pulls inwards) in preparation for pumping blood around the body. The contractions are triggered by electrical pulses. These are generated by a group of specialised cells known as the sinoatrial node (SA node).. The SA node is often referred to as a natural pacemaker because it generates a series of electrical pulses at regular intervals. The pulse is then sent to a group of cells known as the atrioventricular node (AV node). The AV node relays the pulse to the 2 lower chambers of the heart (the ventricles).. A pacemaker or implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is needed when something disrupts this process and causes an abnormal heartbeat. An abnormal heartbeat is called an arrhythmia. Here are some of the most common causes of arrhythmias:. ...

An electrical stimulus is generated by the sinus node (also called the sinoatrial node, or SA node), which is a small mass of specialized tissue located in the right atrium (right upper chamber) of the heart.. The sinus node generates an electrical stimulus regularly at 60 to 100 times per minute under normal conditions. This electrical stimulus travels down through the conduction pathways (similar to the way electricity flows through power lines from the power plant to your house) and causes the hearts lower chambers to contract and pump out blood. The right and left atria (the two upper chambers of the heart) are stimulated first and contract a short period of time before the right and left ventricles (the two lower chambers of the heart).. The electrical impulse travels from the sinus node to the atrioventricular node (also called AV node), where impulses are slowed down for a very short period, then continue down the conduction pathway via the bundle of His into the ventricles.

Ssr Wiring Diagram Heat Element - budayaandroid.com
In a conventional 12-lead ECG, ten electrodes are placed on the patients limbs and on the surface of the chest. The overall magnitude of the hearts electrical potential is then measured from twelve different angles (leads) and is recorded over a period of time (usually ten seconds). In this way, the overall magnitude and direction of the hearts electrical depolarization is captured at each moment throughout the cardiac cycle.. There are three main components to an ECG: the P wave, which represents the depolarization of the atria; the QRS complex, which represents the depolarization of the ventricles; and the T wave, which represents the repolarization of the ventricles.. During each heartbeat, a healthy heart has an orderly progression of depolarization that starts with pacemaker cells in the sinoatrial node, spreads throughout the atrium, and passes through the atrioventricular node down into the bundle of His and into the Purkinje fibers, spreading down and to the left throughout the ...
From antibody insult to fibrosis in neonatal lupus - the heart of the matter | Arthritis Research & Therapy | Full Text
Few diseases exemplify the integration of research from bench to bedside as well as neonatal lupus, often referred to as a model of passively acquired autoimmunity. In essence, this disease encompasses two patients, both the mother and her child. The signature histologic lesion of autoimmune-associated congenital heart block is fibrosis of the conducting tissue, and in some cases the surrounding myocardium. It is astounding how rapid and, in most cases, irreversible is the fibrotic response to injury. The mechanism by which maternal anti-SSA/Ro-SSB/La antibodies initiate and perpetuate inflammation, and eventuate in scarring of the atrioventricular node, is not yet defined. In vitro and in vivo studies suggest that one pathologic cascade leading to scarring may be initiated via apoptosis, resulting in translocation of SSA/Ro-SSB/La antigens and subsequent surface binding by maternal autoantibodies. These opsonized cardiocytes are phagocytosed by macrophages, which secrete factors that transdifferentiate

Click to print
Before moving on, it should be noted that the two nodes (SAN & AVN) and all the conducting fibers in the heart muscle have an intrinsic ability to undergo depolarization. This explains why even if the heart is isolated from the rest of the body, it will resume its pacemaker activity and continue to beat on its own. An isolated SA node has the highest frequency of impulse generation, i.e. 100 beats/min. This intrinsic rhythm of the SAN is regulated down to 72 beats/min under the influence of the autonomic nervous system. Similarly, the AV node has the ability to depolarize at a rate of 60 beats/min. SA node, having a considerably higher frequency of depolarization, overrides the pace maker activity of the AV node. This causes the AV node to generate action potentials at a rate similar to SA node. Upon cessation of high frequency impulses from SA node, as happens during bundle blocks, the AV node is shown to beat at its own inherent frequency. There is a respective decrease in the frequency of ...

PR segment: This is a time of electrical quiescence during which the wave of electrical excitation (depolarization) passes through mainly the AV node. In addition the wave of depolarization moves through the bundle of HIS, bundle branches and purkinje fibers. Since the wave of depolarization moves through the AV node at a speed of about 1/100th the speed the wave moves through the bundle of HIS, bundle branches and purkinje fibers, most of the PR segment is associated with the passage of the wave of depolarization through the AV node ...

Dr. Wes: EKG Du Jour 32: The Misfiring Pacemaker
Because the junctional beat rate is so close to this 850 msec interval, the ventricular sensed event occasionally occurs in the atrial-paced blanking period so it is not detected by the device. As such, no ventricular safety pacing occurs. (Recall that ventricular safety pacing occurs when a ventricular-sensed signal is detected in the paced AV interval and occurs 110 milliseconds after the atrial pacing spike). Because the ventricular event was not sensed at the time the atrial pacing occurs, the pacemaker waits the programmed paced AV delay (180 msec) and delivers the pacing spike when the right ventricle is absolutely refractory (hence no pacing spike capture.) The next junctional beat is then sensed by the RV lead and no pacing output occurs, and the process repeats ...
