Persistent ventricular preexcitation despite right bundle branch block

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 44-year-old man with a history of ventricular preexcitation and supraventricular tachycardia was evaluated. The baseline electrocardiogram exhibited ventricular preexcitation with a normal PR interval and a minimally negative delta wave in lead V1 and positive delta waves in the inferior leads. The administration of adenosine resulted in a progressive prolongation of the PR interval with a fixed preexcitation degree, suggesting the presence of antegrade conduction over the fasciculo-ventricular pathway. When complete right bundle branch block occurred, the degree of preexcitation never changed. These findings suggested that the fasciculo-ventricular pathway was likely to be connected to the left-sided His-Purkinje system.
