In SSA, the incision was made in the right atrium parallel to the right atrio-ventricular groove and extended up to the right atrial appendage.
These findings were further supported by an earlier study in which diminished growth of atrio-ventricular cushions was found in retinoic acid treated chicken embryos (Bouman et al.
10,11) Axial imaging has disadvantages in congenital heart diseases where the cardiac axis and the skeletal axis may not align, leading to inaccuracies in delineating the atrio-ventricular plane.
The bradycardic (heart rate slowing) effect of ATP, in particular its transient blockade of atrio-ventricular nodal conduction, has been shown in multiple published clinical studies to terminate re-entrant PSVT involving the atrio-ventricular node.
A 20-gauge intravenous cannula was inserted across the aortic valve into the left ventricle and secured with a suture around the atrio-ventricular groove.

Jonathan was a 5-month-old twin with Down Syndrome and complete atrio-ventricular canal (also known as endocardial cushion defect or atrio-ventricular septal defect) who came to the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) after surgical repair of his heart defect.
It was here doctors found she had a Partial Atrio-Ventricular Septal Defect.
En condiciones normales, el estimulo electrico cardiaco inicial se genera en una pequena estructura situada en el atrio derecho (ver figura) llamada nodulo sino-atrial, desde alli el impulso se extiende a ambos atrios provocando su contraccion y alcanzando al nodulo atrio-ventricular que sera estimulado por el a generar un nuevo estimulo electrico dirigido hacia los ventriculos, a traves del Haz de His y sus dos ramas, derecha e izquierda, hasta alcanzar un sistema de conduccion mas fino --llamado fibras de Purkinje-- el cual permite que finalmente alcance las fibras musculares miocardicas ventriculares y se complete la contraccion cardiaca o sistole.
The long admission periods were attributable to other factors: maternal problems, such as cesarean section (n = 57); or neonatal problems, such as atresia of the esophagus (n = 3), inguinal hernia (n = 5), atrio-ventricular canal (n = 3), or preterm birth at more than 34 weeks of gestation without respiratory complications (n = 46).
Diego was born with an atrio-ventricular septal defect - which means ``the central portion of the heart was missing,'' Trento said.
