    Concealment of an accessory pathway is caused by its ability to conduct retrogradely only. This variant of accessory pathway conduction could not be confirmed until invasive electrophysiology was introduced in the 1970s. As a rule, it is reported that concealed accessory pathways were predicted...

    Abstract??Endogenous cardiac protection against prolonged ischemic insult can be achieved by repeated brief episodes of ischemia (hypoxia) or by cardiac adaptation to various stresses such as chronic hypoxia. Activation of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt is involved in antiapoptotic...

    The evaluation of a nonsustained wide QRS tachycardia in a life insurance applicant's exercise test presents a special challenge to the medical director because of the unpredicatable and potentially lethal nature of these arrhythmias. Ventricular tachycardia accounts for up to 80% of wide QRS...

    Review of 203 24-h ambulatory electrocardiographic tapes of 140 patients disclosed 32 patients with 66 episodes of paroxysmal atrial tachycardia. In contrast to classic sustained paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia, these episodes were relatively slow and brief. The median duration wail...
