Objectives: Typical atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) can be cured with slow pathway ablation. This study was designed to assess the alterations in atrial and ventricular functioning using speckle tracking echocardiography in consecutive patients with typical AVNRT who underwent slow pathway radiofrequency (RF) ablation.
