Perioperative management of patients with pre-excitation syndromes.

Rom J Anaesth Intensive Care 2018 Oct;25(2):131-147

Department of Anaesthesiology, 401 Military Hospital, Athens, Greece.

Patients with pre-excitation abnormalities are at a high risk for life-threatening perioperative arrhythmias. In Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, the anaesthetics used for invasive diagnostic testing/ablation, should not affect cardiac electrophysiology; propofol, sevoflurane, fentanyl, sufentanil, alfentanil are suitable. In non-ablative surgery, propofol, sevoflurane, isoflurane, fentanyl, alfentanil, sufentanil have been used safely. Read More

A Case of Lown-Ganong-Levine Syndrome: Due to an Accessory Pathway of James Fibers or Enhanced Atrioventricular Nodal Conduction (EAVNC)?

Am J Case Rep 2018 Mar 18;19:309-313. Epub 2018 Mar 18.

Heart Institute, Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, Hollywood, FL, USA.

BACKGROUND Lown-Ganong-Levine syndrome, includes a short PR interval, normal QRS complex, and paroxysmal tachycardia. The pathophysiology of this syndrome includes an accessory pathway connecting the atria and the atrioventricular (AV) node (James fiber), or between the atria and the His bundle (Brechenmacher fiber). Similar features are seen in enhanced atrioventricular nodal conduction (EAVNC), with the underlying pathophysiology due to a fast pathway to the AV node, and with the diagnosis requiring specific electrophysiologic criteria.

Ablation therapy of supraventricular tachycardia in elderly persons.

Am J Geriatr Cardiol 2005 Jan-Feb;14(1):20-5

Department of Cardiovascular Disease, Florida Hospital, Orlando, FL,USA.

Ablation of supraventricular tachycardia in elderly persons presents a challenging problem to electrophysiologists. Friable cardiac structures, prone to catheter perforation, comorbid cardiovascular disease, and the propensity to develop atrial fibrillation and thromboembolic complications, place these patients at high risk. Newer techniques for cardiac mapping and ablation, the establishment of precise ablation lines, and safer approaches to the ablation mechanism (particularly for atrial fibrillation) are presented in this review.

[Ventricular pre-excitation: electrophysiopathology, criteria for interpretation and clinical diagnosis. References for geriatrics].

Minerva Cardioangiol 2001 Feb;49(1):47-73

Istituto di Clinica Medica Generale e Terapia Medica, Università degli Studi, Trieste, Italy.

The authors review the state-of-the-art on ventricular pre-excitation in medical and arrhythmological literature in order to facilitate the recognition of the various clinical forms, like classic and occult Wolff Parkinson withe syndrome and Lown Ganong Levine syndrome. A historical introduction reviews our electrophysiopathological knowledge of the electrical activation and conduction of ventricular pre-excitation compared to normal, starting from the anatomic discovery of conduction pathways to the possible use of transesophageal electrostimulation and endocavity mapping to study electric potentials. Avantgarde technologies have also been developed to eliminate anomalous pathways firstly by using a direct current dirscharge and secondly radiofrequency. Read More

High incidence of pre-excitation syndrome in Japanese families with Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy.

Clin Genet 1996 Dec;50(6):535-7

Department of Ophthalmology, Keio University School of Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.

Cardiac conduction abnormalities have been reported in families with Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON). The pre-excitation syndrome Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome or Lown-Ganong-Levine syndrome, is reportedly common in Finns with LHON, being seen in 14 (9%) of the 163 individuals with mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutations. While this syndrome is thought to be rare in other ethnic groups with LHON, the present study of 35 Japanese LHON families confirmed that it is also relatively common among Japanese families, being seen in 5 (8%) of the 63 individuals with mtDNA mutations.

Clinical and evolutive aspects in ventricular preexcitation syndromes in child.

Rev Med Chir Soc Med Nat Iasi 1996 Jul-Dec;100(3-4):95-8

1st Clinic of Pediatrics, University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Iaşi.

Ventricular preexcitation syndromes (VPS) are very important between cardiac rhythm disturbances in childhood, because their presence can change the clinical and ECG picture and thus the treatment can be very difficult. The authors studied 58 cases of VPS in children (2 weeks-15 years old) admitted in a period of 3 years. The surface ECG showed VPS aspects: in 30% of cases we noticed WPW syndrome type B and the rest presented VPS with Mahaim pathways and Lown-Ganong-Levine syndrome. Read More

Enhanced A-V nodal conduction (Lown-Ganong-Levine syndrome) by congenitally hypoplastic A-V node.

Eur Heart J 1992 Nov;13(11):1579-84

Department of Cardiology, City Hospital, Vicenza, Italy.

The basic anatomical substrate of enhanced A-V nodal conduction, manifesting or not as Lown-Ganong-Levine syndrome, is still a controversial issue. We describe the case of a 34-year-old man who presented episodes of ventricular fibrillation. Electrophysiological studies showed that the AH interval was 55 ms, and increased by only 20 ms at paced cycle lengths of 300 ms; atrial pacing induced atrial fibrillation, with a shortest RR interval of 240 ms.

[Transesophageal pacing in the diagnosis of accelerated atrioventricular conduction].

Cardiologia 1989 Jan;34(1):87-91

The term "enhanced atrioventricular nodal conduction" (EAVN) is used to indicate an electrophysiologic condition characterized by subnormal conduction delay with reduced decremental properties in the AV node, which can be responsible for rapid ventricular rates in the event of fast atrial rhythms. Although identification of such an entity usually requires definition of the AV conduction intervals, some authors have suggested that EAVN can be diagnosed, by means of atrial pacing only, when 1:1 conduction with narrow QRS complexes occurs during atrial pacing at rate higher than 200 bpm. The use of incremental transesophageal atrial pacing (TAP) as a noninvasive tool for identification of EAVN was investigated in 19 patients. Read More

Characteristics of ventriculoatrial conduction in patients with enhanced atrioventricular nodal conduction.

Pacing Clin Electrophysiol 1987 Jan;10(1 Pt 1):32-40

To study the characteristics of the ventriculoatrial conduction system in patients capable of rapid antegrade atrioventricular conduction, electrophysiologic studies were performed in 23 subjects capable of 1:1 atrioventricular conduction at atrial cycle lengths less than or equal to 300 ms (Group I), and in 23 subjects with normal 1:1 atrioventricular conduction (Group II). During ventricular pacing, ventriculoatrial block at all cycle lengths was seen in 5/23 (22%) in Group I and in 7/23 (30%) in Group II patients (p = NS). In the remainder, the minimum ventricular pacing cycle length maintaining 1:1 ventriculoatrial conduction was 359 +/- 85 ms in Group I, compared to 444 +/- 118 ms in Group II (p less than .

An electrophysiological exploration was carried out in 48 patients presenting a syndrome short PR-small QRS (group I), compared to a reference group of 537 patients who did not present this abnormality and had no previous history of Bouveret's tachycardia (group II). The most remarkable abnormality in group I is an acceleration of the anterograde nodal conduction with a Wenckebach point beyond 200/min, significantly more frequent than in group II. The retrograde conduction is also excellent in group I, but without significant difference in comparison to patients from group II who have an accelerated anterograde conduction. Read More
