10) Cystic tumor of the atrioventricular node is an important differential diagnosis in young patients with syncopal attacks and varying degrees of heart blockage.
nodal artery (AVN): An AVN artery arose separately or jointly with the left atrioventricular sulcal branch (SB) from the convexity of RCA near the crux of the heart, the AVN artery could be traced to the AV node.

As increasing evidence demonstrated the short-term safety and effectiveness of the procedure, radio frequency catheter ablation has emerged as a first-line treatment, initially for patients with symptomatic Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and more recently for patients with atrioventricular nodal reentry.
Cardiac ablation is commonly used for "simple" arrhythmias, like Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome and atrioventricular nodal re-entry tachycardia (AVNRT), and is increasingly being used for more complex arrhythmias like ventricular tachycardia and atrial fibrillation.
An electrocardiogram on hospital admission showed atrial fibrillation, complete atrioventricular block, and a regular junctional escape rhythm at a rate of 37 beats/min (Figure).
