This study was designed to assess the effects of isoflurane (ISO) on the electrophysiological properties of the accessory pathway, atrium, ventricle, and AV node in children with the Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome. The results of programmed electrical stimulation were analyzed in 51 patients (4 months to 17 years of age) with WPW. The study population was divided into two groups. Twenty-seven patients received local anesthesia and intramuscular injection of meperidine, promethazine, and… CONTINUE READING
