Although most asymptomatic patients with the Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome have a good prognosis, some die suddenly. Electrophysiological testing may identify patients at possible risk of sudden death. The mechanism of sudden death in these patients is believed to result from ventricular fibrillation due to atrial fibrillation with rapid anterograde conduction over the accessory pathway. Consequently, we performed electrophysiological studies in 40 asymptomatic patients with the Wolff… CONTINUE READING
