Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) Syndrome
These patients have extra conducting tissue, called accessory pathways that connect the atria and ventricles and provide an electrical conduit that sustains tachycardia or fast heart beat. These patients have episodes of fast heart rate and also carries some risk of atrial fibrillation & sudden cardiac death.
It is easy to recognize these patients from the electrocardiogram, which contains clues to the presence of an abnormal pathway.
Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive procure with cure rate of > 90 %. During the procedure electrophysiologist burns the accessory pathway and this brings about cure to the problem.
The Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome is named for Drs. Louis Wolff, John Parkinson, and Paul Dudley White who first described patients with the condition in 1930. Type your paragraph here.
