Electrocardiography (ECG) is especially significant in pre-participation screening due to its ability to discover or to rise a suspicion for certain cardiovascular diseases and conditions that represent a serious health risk in athletes. Common, conditionally benign and training related ECG changes are sinus bradycardia and sinus arrhythmia, first degree atrioventricular block, incomplete right bundle branch block, benign early repolarization, and isolated QRS voltage criteria for left ventricular enlargement...

Wolf Parkinson White syndrome is a pre-excitation syndrome due to an accessory conduction pathway. Electrocardiography demonstrates a short PR interval, long QRS interval and delta waves in normal sinus rhythm. Atrial fibrillation with underlying Wolf Parkinson White syndrome presents with irregular wide complex tachycardia, and can cause sudden cardiac death by precipitating ventricular fibrillation. Irregular wide complex tachycardia may be the first presentation of this underlying conduction abnormality in young patients...

A 70-year-old woman with Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome developed cardiac tamponade while undergoing radiofrequency catheter ablation for left posterolateral accessory pathway from the ventricular side below the mitral valve, requiring emergency surgery. During surgery, the patient was found to have perforation of the left posterior free wall as well as left atrial dissection. The patient died despite emergency measures. This case was remarkable because radiofrequency catheter ablation resulted in two very rare complications occurring at the same time in a patient...

The differential diagnosis of an rSr' pattern in leads V1-V2 on electrocardiogram is a frequently encountered entity in clinical cardiology. This finding often presents itself in asymptomatic and healthy individuals. The causes might vary from benign and nonpathological, to severe and life-threatening diseases, such as Brugada syndrome or arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia. Workup of these patients involves a history and physical examination to screen for underlying cardiac disease and potential triggers...

Mutations in PRKAG2 gene that regulates the γ2 subunit of the adenosine monophosphate (AMP) dependent protein kinase have been associated with the development of atrioventricular (AV) accessory pathways, cardiac hypertrophy, and conduction system abnormalities. These patients can potentially be misdiagnosed as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HOCM) and/or Wolf-Parkinson White (WPW) syndrome due to similar clinical phenotype. Early recognition of this disease entity is very important as ablation of suspected accessory pathways is not effective and the natural history of the disease is very different from HOCM and WPW syndrome...

The 12-lead electrocardiogram has limited value in precisely identifying the origin of focal or critical component of reentrant arrhythmias during supraventricular arrhythmias, as well as precisely locating accessory atrioventricular conduction pathways. Because of these limitations, efforts have been made to reconstruct epicardial activation sequences from body surface measurements obtained noninvasively. The last decade has registered significant progress in obtaining clinically useful data from the attempts to noninvasively map the epicardial electrical activity...

Interruption of inferior vena cava with azygos continuation is a rare venous anomaly. We report the case of a 17 old male with Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome and a persistent vena azygos. Despite the complex anatomical situation, it was possible to safely ablate a lateral accessory pathway with radiofrequency energy using a femoral retrograde approach.

BACKGROUND: Rhabdomyomas are the most common type of cardiac tumors in children. Anatomically, they can be considered as hamartomas. They are usually randomly diagnosed antenatally or postnatally sometimes presenting in the neonatal period with haemodynamic compromise or severe arrhythmias although most neonatal cases remain asymptomatic. Typically rhabdomyomas are multiple lesions and usually regress spontaneously but are often associated with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), an autosomal dominant multisystem disorder caused by mutations in either of the two genes, TSC1 or TSC2...

INTRODUCTION: Cardiovascular pre-participation screening (PPS) is recommended for the identification of athletes at risk for sudden cardiac death. However, there is currently no universally accepted screening protocol. METHODS: Two distinct PPS strategies were studied in a large cohort of Greek athletes (5 to 39 years old): PPS I, with routine 12-lead ECG and echo, in addition to personal and family history, and physical examination; and PPS II, without routine echo...

Despite the emergence of advanced invasive technology in identifying the various types of arrhythmia mechanisms, 24-h ambulatory electrocardiogram monitoring as a non-invasive method remains an invaluable informative tool in delineating such mechanisms. Furthermore, one observational study has supported the utilization of 24-h Holter monitoring in exploring AV Node (AVN) characteristics sufficiently in correlation with invasive studies when limited to patients without Wolf Parkinson White syndrome showing a positive predictive value of 98% in their supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) assessment (Fukuda et al...

Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is the most common pediatric arrhythmia. SVT occurs more frequently in infants under 1 year of age, most of whom have structurally normal hearts. Pejorative predisposing factors such as congenital heart disease exist in only a few patients. In patients with a healthy heart, SVT is due to re-entry via an accessory pathway. Some articles describe occurrence of SVT in 1 of the fetuses or newborns from multiple gestation pregnancies, but few cases report simultaneous start of SVT in twins...

A 34 year-old male patient presented with recurrent attack of palpitation and chest pain due to Wolf Parkinson White syndrome (WPWS). Two dimensional echocardiography demonstrated features of Ebstein's anomaly along with biventricular non compaction. Color flow Doppler studies confirmed the presence of blood flow within the trabeculations. Biventricular myocardial non-compaction associated with Ebstein's anomaly who presented with WPWS is a very rare association. So far, Medline search revealed only three reported cases in the literatures...

A 25-year-old pregnant woman was admitted with frequent episodes of supraventricular tachycardia associated with Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome. She was treated acutely with adenosine therapy during induction of labor and post-partum. Generally, pharmacologic treatment should be undertaken only for symptomatic arrhythmias or in hemodynamically compromised patients. Adenosine is the first choice for acute treatment of supraventricular tachycardia in pregnancy; several other options exist, but all have the potential for negative side effects for mother and fetus...

Results of long term clinic-electrophysiological follow-up of a large group of children with Wolf-Parkinson-White (WPW) phenomenon are present. From 1993 to 2011 we examined 176 children - 117 boys (66,5%) and 59 girls (33,5%) - with manifesting type of WPW. Age at first examination was 12.5+/-3.2 ( 0.1 18 ). In 66.5% of children WPW phenomenon was present in the age from 10 to 18 . Hundred fifty nine children (104 [65.4%] boys and 55 [34.6%] girls) were followed up for 0.5-17 years (mean 7.4+/-4.5 years). During follow-up spontaneous attacs of atrioventricular reciprocal tachycardia appeared in 13 children (8...
