The Fwave is due to direct antidromic activation of spinal motor neurons.
Upon antidromic conduction, the action potential reaches terminal nerve endings adjacent to a neighboring population of blood vessels.
SNAP was recorded from the wrist via antidromic stimulation of the median nerve at the second finger.
Inclusion criteria for the control group were age 18-75 years, documented non-AF arrhythmia including one of the following: left atrial tachycardia, paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (orthodromic or antidromic), or FBI (fast, broad, and irregular) tachycardia due to a left-sided accessory pathway, preexcitation on the 12-lead electrocardiogram in an asymptomatic individual in whom the electrophysiology study revealed a left-sided accessory pathway potentially resulting in significant arrhythmia based on its conduction properties, and patient being willing to sign a written informed consent.
In that study for the ulnar nerve, abnormality seen by motor conduction velocity was identified in 28%, sensory antidromic conduction velocity using digit five in 46% and orthodromic sensory conduction of the dorsal cutaneous branch in 82%.
In 'antidromic' AVRT, the antegrade limb is the accessory pathway and the retrograde limb the AV node.
[sup][30] High frequency stimulation of the upstream (EC) and downstream (FX) structures of the hippocampus both shown to affect the spatial memory associated with the hippocampus in our study, indicating that DBS may have an impact on the neural network, which is associated with the stimulated structure in both the orthodromic and antidromic directions.
SP biologic functions consist in local axon reflex vasodilatation, acceleration of epidermal and endothelial cell proliferation, mast cell degranulation, antidromic vasodilatation, and liberation of inflammation mediators from macrophages and T lymphocytes.
Antidromic (retrograde) PSVT is due to a reentry circuit conducting from the bundle of Kent to the ventricles, and then retrograde through the His-Purkinje system and AV node to the atria.
