W.P. is more prone to appear at A-V-J but is also seen at other sites of the conduction system. It may exhibit as classical or atypical form and as well as the alternating pattern in conduction sequence. The following cases will be presented below.

    Inhibition of the blood fibrinolytic system (plasminogen/plasmin) occurs either at the level of plasminogen activators, regulated by specific plasminogen activator inhibitors (PAIs) or at the level of plasmin, mainly regulated by a2-antiplasmin (a2-AP). In this contribution, we focused on the...
