Please can you tell me what 'junctional tachcardia' is?  I have read some about it, and wonder whether I have it.

Does anyone know what 'junctional tachardia' is?  I can't find much on the web about it.

We have some duplicates in recent hours.  See, for example:

I could be wrong about this, but I believe the term "junctional tachycardia" involves a number of types of SVT's arising from the atria or the atrioventricular (AV) junction.  The term 'supraventricular tachycardia' is usually reserved for atrial tachycardias and arrhythmias arising from the region of the AV junction as a result of a re-entry mechanism (junctional tachycardias). Junctional tachycardias cause a narrow complex tachycardia. The two types of junctional tachycardias are:  AV nodal re-entrant tachycardia (AVNRT) in which the entire tachycardia circuit is confined to the AV node and surrounding myocardium, or AV re-entrant tachycardia (AVRT) in which there is an additional abnormal pathway between the atrium and ventricle completing the circuit. I had the latter for 54 years.  If this is the case, both types are controllable and/curable.
