The most common type of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is called atrioventricular node re-entrant tachycardia (AVNRT) or A-V nodal reentry. In A-V nodal reentry, the electrical impulse travels in and around the A-V node. The electrical signal goes around in a circle, like a racecar going around a racetrack. The electrical signal may continue going around this pathway, causing the tachycardia to continue.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
