Junctional Tachycardia: Congenital, Acquired, Postoperative
The several forms of junctional ectopic tachycardia (JET), including the congenital form, postoperative JET, and focal junctional tachycardia are outlined. The electrophysiologic properties of this arrhythmia are described. Postoperative junctional tachycardia is address in detail, including risk factors and treatment. Congenital junctional tachycardia and focal junctional tachycardia are outlined including their treatment, with transcatheter ablation.
