Abstract

Patterns of ventriculoatrial conduction have been used to distinguish retrograde conduction over an accessory atrioventricular pathway from that over the normal atrioventricular conduction system. Ventriculoatrial conduction at a constant interval during incremental ventricular pacing and during progressive prematurity of ventricular extrastimuli has been considered characteristic of conduction over an accessory pathway. The authors describe 3 patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome who had rogressive or sudden increments in ventriculoatrial conduction over an accessory pathway during fixed-rate ventricular pacing or during introduction of ventricular extrastimuli. Such properties have been considered characteristic of conduction over the normal atrioventricular conduction system. We conclude that retrograde conduction over accessory pathways may resemble conduction over the normal atrioventricular conduction system.
