There are only a few studies of WPW syndrome
occurring in association with TS, with and without rhabdomyoma.
Optimal outcomes can be obtained from one-stage operation in patients with Type B WPW syndrome
. Severe LVOTO during surgery might be related to improper operation of the atrialized right ventricle.
Maternal mortality due to Ebstein anomaly is considered to be less than 1% in asymptomatic patients but may be as high as 5-15%, if aggravated by conditions like supraventricular arrhythmia, WPW syndrome
or atrial fibrillation (4).
ECG findings of WPW syndrome
became evident at 10 years of age.
The combination of WPW syndrome
and Rheumatic mitral stenosis is rarely reported in Literature.
Pulmonary stenosis was the most common obstructive lesion making 3.1% of the CHD followed by Aortic stenosis 1.89% and Coarctation of aorta 1%.Three cases of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, 1 case of sub-aortic stenosis and congenital WPW syndrome
have also been recorded.
is easily identifiable through an electrocardiogram scan.
In WPW syndrome
, ventricular depolarization occurs first by an accessory AV tract called the bundle of Kent, followed shortly thereafter by the His-Purkinje system.
Exclusion criteria were the following: WPW syndrome
, hyperkalemia, ventricular and nodal heart rhythm, artificial pacemaker, valvular defect, myocardial revascularization surgery (performed during current hospitalization).
Patients with WPW syndrome
may usually present palpitation, syncope, and sudden death.
WOLFF-Parkinson-White syndrome, or WPW syndrome
, is the presence of an extra, abnormal electrical pathway in the heart that leads to periods of very fast heartbeat.
