Abstract

The concepts of upper and lower common pathways represent long-standing controversies of atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT). Over the last years there has been considerable evidence against the presence of a lower and, especially, an upper common pathway as distinct entities that can be identified in most patients with atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia. The mechanism and relevance of these concepts remain speculative.
