Short RP interval atrioventricular re-entrant tachycardias do not typically present as an incessant form. We present 2 cases of incessant atrioventricular re-entrant tachycardias leading to tachycardia-induced cardiomyopathy with severe heart failure presentation in middle-aged adults. Both underwent accessory pathway ablation and recovered normal left ventricle function before hospital discharge. ().
