BACKGROUND The prevalence of Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome varies between 0.68 and 1.7/1000. The epidemiological profile may be modified after the introduction of transcatheter interventions. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study is to investigate the epidemiological trends of the WPW syndrome in a general population during a period with available and reimbursed transcatheter ablation. METHODS AND RESULTS Data of WPW patients <50 years old were retrieved from our national database (2000… CONTINUE READING
