Method of discrete exposure to radiofrequency current was used in 46 patients with midseptal and anteroseptal accessory atrioventricular pathways. No cases of iatrogenic AV-block were observed in the immediate and late periods.

The overall effectiveness of the method is 73,3%. Our approach in treating this group of patients is safe and perfectly acceptable alternative to chronic antiarrhythmic therapy in children.
