Open Access Using Three-Dimensional Lorenz Scatter Plots to Detect Patients with Atrioventricular Node Double Path Caused by Interpolated Ventricular Premature Systoles: A Case Study

This article is Open Access under the terms of the Creative Commons CC BY-NC licence.

A series of related electrophysiology phenomena can be caused by the occurrence of interpolated ventricular premature contraction. In our recent three-dimensional Lorenz R-R scatter plot research, we found that atrioventricular node double path caused by interpolated ventricular premature contraction imprints a specific pattern on three-dimensional Lorenz plots generated from 24-hour Holter recordings. We found two independent subclusters separated from the interpolated premature beat precluster, the interpolated premature beat cluster, and the interpolated premature beat postcluster, respectively. Combined with use of the trajectory tracking function and the leap phenomenon, our results reveal the presence of the atrioventricular node double conduction path.
