Abstract

Dual atrioventricular nodal physiology (DAVNP) is a frequent finding in patients with suspected or documented supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). Empiric slow pathway ablation (ESPA) is sometimes performed in patients with DAVNP without inducible SVT at the time of electrophysiological study. Evidence to guide this practice in the adult population is limited. This study was aimed to assess the practice of ESPA by adult electrophysiologists in Canada.
All Canadian interventional electrophysiologists (n = 81) were invited to complete a web-based questionnaire assessing their practice of ESPA in patients with suspected and documented SVT. Operator experience, reimbursement models, diagnostic, and treatment decisions regarding ESPA were assessed with case scenarios.
Variability in the practice of ESPA in cases of non-inducible SVT exists. Documentation of the clinical arrhythmia, operator experience, and perceived low complication rates positively influence this practice.
