A new antitachycardia pacemaker system was used in a 58 year old woman to terminate two different types of supravehtricular tachycardia by a single automatic pacing mode. During the invasive electrophysiologic study before pacemaker implantation (in the absence of medication), sustained episodes of atrioventricular (AV) nodal reentrant tachycardia and two short-lasting episodes of nonsustained atrial tachycardia were induced. After implantation, sustained episodes of both AV nodal tachycardia and atrial tachycardia were initiated. Both arrhythmias could be terminated reproducibly by a single pacing mode.
