The article describes the case of a 30-year-old professional male cyclist who was diagnosed with asynchronic and hypokinetic movement of the left ventricular posterior wall due to preexcitation syndrome. The man presented with palpitations and a wide irregular QRS complex tachycardia on electrocardiography. Catheter ablation of the accessory pathway was undertaken to improve the left ventricular posterior (LVP) motion and normalize systolic function.
