ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the risks and management of Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW). WPW is an electrocardiographic abnormality and a common diagnostic and therapeutic issue among cardiac specialists. The condition is associated to the eccentric activation of the ventricular myocardium causing electrophysiological consequences like paroxysmal occurrence of atrioventricular reciprocating tachycardia (SVT).
