The other seven QRSs are the result of conduction down the atrioventricular node and His bundle and show left bundle branch block.
By the end of atrial systole, the impulse reaches the atrioventricular node, which is in the right atrium.
The sinoatrial node is the primary pacemaker, which conducts the electrical impulse to the atrioventricular node and by way of the atrioventricular bundle to the ventricles.
We describe the main features of the cystic tumor of the atrioventricular node (CTAVN), another pseudoneoplastic lesion that may cause sudden death.
The atrioventricular node (AVN) then serves as the electrical junction between the atria and the ventricles.
Exacerbation of low cardiac output states and congestive heart failure due to the withdrawal of inotropic effect of digitalis; hypokalemia due to reactivation of the sodium-potassium ATPase; rapid ventricular response in patients with atrial fibrillation due to the withdrawal of the effects of digitalis on the atrioventricular node and rare allergic reactions.
Knowing which vessel is occluded before percutaneous coronary intervention can help in planning the procedure and recognizing when patients are at high risk for disturbances in conduction at the atrioventricular node.
Presumably, a nutrient branch distal to this segmental stenosis at least partially supplied the atrioventricular node in this patient.
