1. Synonym(s): atrioventricular bundle
2. a muscle fiber bundle in the mammalian heart below the atrioventricular node; may also occur in humans.
Etymology: Albert F. S. Kent, English physiologist, 1863-1958; AS, byndel, to bind
an accessory pathway between an atrium and a ventricle outside of the conduction system. This congenital anomaly causes Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. The term "accessory pathway" is preferred because the one Kent described had a precise location (anterior and near the fibrous ring of the tricuspid valve).
