We report the case of a young man without prior medical history who presented with a left ventricular heart failure because of a new onset atrial fibrillation. The evolution is characterized by a sinus rythm dysfunction, a complete atrioventricular block, a non-sustained ventricular tachycardia (which required a dual-chamber defibrillator implantation) and an ischemic testicular necrosis treated by orchidectomy. After ruling out differential diagnosis we evoked an hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Successful ablation sites in Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW) are characterized by short atrioventricular (AV) intervals. Approximately 15% of patients with WPW have adenosine-sensitive accessory pathways (APs). We sought to determine if local AV intervals of adenosine-sensitive APs are different from those of adenosine-insensitive APs in patients with WPW.

Congenital cardiovascular anomalies, such as dextrocardia, persistent left superior vena cava (SVC), and pulmonary artery (PA) sling, are rare disorders. These congenital anomalies can occur alone, or coincide with other congenital malformations. In the majority of cases, congenital anomalies are detected early in life by certain signs and symptoms.

Screening of competitive athletes and other individuals exposed to regular and intense physical exercise, such as military personnel, can lead to an early and preclinical identification of cardiac conditions associated with a higher risk for sudden cardiac death. The electrocardiogram (ECG) has been recommended for the precompetitive screening, but its interpretation remains controversial. The aim of this study was to compare three different standardized criteria for interpretation of athletes' ECG applied in military.

The relationship between ventricular pre-excitation and left ventricular dysfunction has been described in the absence of sustained supraventricular tachycardia in a series of case reports. There have been no systematic studies about the effect of ventricular pre-excitation with different accessory pathway locations on ventricular wall motion and left ventricular (LV) systolic function.
Thirty patients were selected for each of 4 groups, including those with right septal pathways (Group 1), right free-wall pathways (Group 2), left free-wall pathways (Group 3), and non-pre-excited patients undergoing electrophysiological evaluation for supraventricular tachycardia.

Ebstein's anomaly is a rare congenital heart disorder, accounting for <1% of all cases of congenital heart disease. It is a congenital malformation of the heart that is characterized by apical displacement of the septal and posterior tricuspid valve leaflets, leading to atrialization of the right ventricle with a variable degree of malformation and displacement of the anterior leaflet. We report the case of a 25 years old female with Ebstein's anomaly which was associated with Ostium Secundum type of atrial septal defect and WPW syndrome, who presented with dyspnea, palpitations, cyanosis, clubbing and cardiomegaly.

Mutations in the PRKAG2 gene encoding the γ-subunit of adenosine monophosphate kinase (AMPK) cause hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) and familial Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome. Patients carrying the R302Q mutation in PRKAG2 present with sinus bradycardia, escape rhythms, ventricular preexcitation, supraventricular tachycardia, and atrioventricular block. This mutation affects AMPK activity and increases glycogen storage in cardiomyocytes.

Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome and idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia (ILVT) are rare and up to now the coexistence of both entities has rarely been reported. In patients with ventricular preexcitation the underlying mechanism of paroxysmal tachycardia most likely is atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia (AVRT). However, without ECG documentation of the tachycardia diagnosis of the underlying mechanism cannot be made due to similar clinical presentation of AVRT and ILVT.

A 21-year-old man with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and aneurysmal septal dyskinesis underwent radiofrequency catheter ablation of the accessory pathways. Before radiofrequency catheter ablation, the activation wavefront arose from the aneurysmal septum, whereas the propagation of the left ventricle was normalised after radiofrequency catheter ablation. These findings demonstrate the importance of the electro-mechanical interaction in patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and ventricular dysfunction.

Radiofrequency (RF) catheter ablation is the treatment of choice in patients with accessory pathways (APs) and Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. Endocardial catheter ablation has limitations, including the inability to map and ablate intramural or subepicardial APs. Some of these difficulties can be overcome using an epicardial approach performed through the epicardial venous system or by percutaneous catheterisation of the pericardial space.

A 21-year-old man with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome presented to the authors' hospital with ventricular fibrillation. Coronary angiography failed to demonstrate coronary stenosis, but temporary mechanical circulatory support resolved the ventricular fibrillation and the patient was extubated eight days later. On the next day, however, he had to be re-intubated with symptoms of congestive heart failure.

To ablate accessory pathway successfully and conveniently, accurate localization of the pathway is needed. Electrophysiologists use different algorithms before taking the patients to the electrophysiology (EP) laboratory to plan the intervention accordingly. In this study, we used Arruda algorithm to locate the accessory pathway.

BACKGROUND PRKAG2 syndrome diagnosis is already well-defined as Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW), ventricular hypertrophy (VH) due to glycogen accumulation, and conduction system disease (CSD). Because of its rarity, there is a lack of literature focused on the treatment. The present study aimed to describe appropriate strategies for the treatment of affected family members with PRKAG2 syndrome with a long follow-up period.

Ebstein's anomaly is the most commonly occurring congenital defect associated with the Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. In patients with Ebstein's anomaly and supraventricular tachycardia, the absence of right bundle branch block (RBBB) in sinus rhythm is a highly sensitive and specific indicator of the presence of an ipsilateral accessory AP.
We present an electrophysiology case of a patient with Ebstein's anomaly and 3 ipsilateral accessory pathways.

Danon disease (DD) is a rare X-linked disorder caused by loss-of-function mutations in the LAMP2 gene, which encodes lysosome-associated membrane protein. It is characterized by the triad of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, myopathy, and intellectual disability. Whereas the molecular and pathophysiological mechanisms underlying this disorder have been previously reported and continue to be explored, the cognitive deficits and psychiatric comorbidities manifested in DD remain an understudied topic.

The management of the asymptomatic pre-excited patient largely hinges on risk stratification and individual patient considerations and choice. A high threshold to treat patients may lead to a small overall risk of death while a low threshold clearly leads to increased invasive testing and ablation with associated cost and procedural risk. A firm recommendation to uniformly assess all by electrophysiology study or, alternatively, reassure all is inappropriate and unjustified by data as reflected in the recent guideline recommendations.

The micro waveform of His bundle potential can't be recorded beat-to-beat on surface electrocardiogram yet. We have found that the micro-wavelets before QRS complex may be related to atrioventricular conduction system potentials. This study is to explore the possibility of His bundle potential can be noninvasively recorded on surface electrocardiogram.

The delta wave remains an important indicator to diagnose the WPW syndrome. In this paper, a new method of detection of delta wave in an ECG signal is proposed. Firstly, using the continuous wavelet transform, the P wave, the QRS complex and the T wave are detected, then their durations are computed after determination of the boundary location (onsets and offsets of the P, QRS and T waves).
