INTRODUCTION Echocardiographic studies have shown that some patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome have myocardial dyskinesia in the segments precociously activated by an accessory pathway (AP). The aim of the present study was to determine the extent to which the AP contributes to global left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. METHODS Electrophysiological and echocardiographic data from 62 children with WPW (age at diagnosis = 5.9 +/- 4.2 years) were retrospectively analyzed… CONTINUE READING
