Atrial Tachycardia: A Rare Type of Supra Ventricular Tachycardia

M Aziz, M Ullah, M Hossain, MA Ali

Atrial tachycardia is a relatively uncommon form of SVT. Atrial tachycardia can be observed in
persons with normal heart and in those with congenital heart disease and particularly after surgery
for repair or correction of congenital or valvular heart disease. Atrial tachycardia tends to be
refractory to pharmacologic therapy and is therefore frequently treated with ablative therapy. If
untreated, it may lead to tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy. So, atrial tachycardia needs to be
discussed for recognition and appropriate management. We have gone through different journals to
review the latest informations about atrial tachycardia.
