Accrochage

Accrochage

intermittent synchronization of two different rhythms of the heart with one influencing the behaviour of the other when neither is dominant; seen in cases of atrioventricular dissociation when an atrial beat falls shortly after a ventricular beat, the latter causing the atrial beat to occur sooner than expected.

Origin: fr. Hooking, hitching
