Sacral Neuromodulation in a Patient with Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome: A Case Report.

Res Rep Urol 2020 17;12:193-197. Epub 2020 Jun 17.

Department of Urology, College of Medicine, Majmaah University, Al-Majmaah, Saudi Arabia.

Sacral neuromodulation has gained widespread use for bladder overactivity, frequency, urgency, fecal incontinence, and nonobstructive urinary retention; hence, implantations of this device in patients with comorbid cardiac conduction diseases have increased. Theoretically, there are some concerns regarding the use of sacral neuromodulation implants in patients with Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome and cardiac conduction diseases because of the risk of interference with electrical impulses. This study aimed to describe the safety of using sacral neuromodulation to treat nonobstructive urinary retention in patients with a cardiac conduction disease. Read More

Clin Cardiol 2020 Jun 27. Epub 2020 Jun 27.

Cardiology Clinical Academic Group, St. George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, St. George's University of London, London, UK.

Accessory pathways are present in 1 in 300 young individuals. They are often asymptomatic and potentially lethal arrhythmias may be the first presentation. During long-term follow-up, up to 20% of asymptomatic individuals with pre-excitation go on to develop an arrhythmia and the absence of traditional clinical and electrophysiological high-risk markers does not guarantee the "safe" nature of an accessory pathway.

Novel Assessment of Accessory Pathway Function in Patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome.

Pediatr Cardiol 2020 Jun 11. Epub 2020 Jun 11.

Pediatric Cardiology, Cohen Children's Medical Center-Northwell Health, New Hyde Park, NY, USA.

Surrogates for the shortest pre-excited R-R interval in atrial fibrillation (SPERRI) such as the accessory pathway effective refractory period (APERP) and shortest pre-excited paced cycle length (SPPCL) are flawed assessments of accessory pathway function in patients with WPW. Multi-extrastimulus pacing may have the theoretical advantage of more accurately mimicking the clinical reality of atrial fibrillation and thus may serve to better assess accessory pathway function. This cross-sectional study included 25 consecutive patients, aged ≤ 18 years, undergoing electrophysiology study for WPW. Read More

Indices of left ventricular voltage on electrocardiogram are closely associated with serum cardiac troponin I levels in normotensive Japanese individuals.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2020 May;99(19):e19992

Department of Cardiology, Nagoya City University Graduate School of Medical Sciences.

The high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I (hs-cTnI) in serum can increase due to an increase in left ventricular (LV) overload in individuals with hypertension. Since LV voltage on an electrocardiogram (ECG) reflects LV load, it is possible that LV voltage is closely associated with hs-cTnI in individuals without hypertension. This study investigated the association between LV voltage indices and serum hs-cTnI levels in normotensive Japanese individuals. Read More

Histological examination of the potential arrhythmic substrates in the setting of Ebstein's malformation.

J Anat 2020 Jul 2;237(1):155-165. Epub 2020 Mar 2.

Institute of Genetic Medicine, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

Cardiac arrhythmias, notably Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, are known to represent a major issue in patients with Ebstein's malformation of the tricuspid valve. Abnormal conducting circuits, however, can also be produced by pathways extending either from the atrioventricular node or the ventricular components of the atrioventricular conduction axis, direct to the crest of the muscular ventricular septum. We hoped to provide further information on the potential presence of such pathways by investigations of six autopsied examples of Ebstein's malformation. Read More

Department of Internal Medicine, Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI, USA.

Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is a conduction disturbance in which atrial impulses are transmitted to the ventricles by an accessory pathway instead of the normal atrioventricular conduction. The WPW syndrome may either simulate myocardial infarction or mask the electrocardiographic abnormalities of an acute MI. However, concealed WPW revealed after an acute coronary syndrome is rare with few cases reported in the literature. Read More

While studies have described reasons for initial ablation failure, less is known about outcomes of repeat ablation attempts. The purpose of this study was to report acute and mid-term success rates for second ablation attempts in young patients, as well as to analyze factors that may affect these outcomes. Read More

Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and de Winter patterns; An implication for paying special attention to electrocardiogram.

ARYA Atheroscler 2019 Jul;15(4):201-204

PhD Candidate, Department of Medical Genetics, School of Medicine, Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, Mashhad, Iran.

Background: Despite recent advances in diagnostic techniques in cardiology, electrocardiography (ECG) has yet remained the first and corner stone of detecting emergency cardiac events including myocardial infarction (MI). There are some ECG findings which are considered as equivalents to MI. De Winter ST-T wave pattern is one of the important ECG findings which is thought to be related to left anterior descending artery occlusion. Read More

Wide QRS tachycardia associated with multiple accessory pathways in a patient with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome.

J Cardiol Cases 2019 Dec 2;20(6):191-196. Epub 2019 Oct 2.

Division of Cardiology, Ako City Hospital, Ako, Hyogo, Japan.

The electrocardiogram of a 14-year-old boy with recurrent palpitation showed a wide QRS regular tachycardia with a right bundle branch block and right-axis deviation of 226 beats per minute. Verapamil infusion terminated the tachycardia after a few minutes. Electrophysiological study revealed that this tachycardia was considered as a reentrant tachycardia associated with the anterograde left posterior accessory pathway (AP) and retrograde right septal AP.

Atrio-ventricular block on Wolff Parkinson White's syndrome: a rare association.

Tunis Med 2019 Apr;97(4):599-603

Complete atrioventricular block (AV block) associated with an accessory pathway is a rare phenomenon. We report the case of a third degree AV block paired with a Wolff Parkinson White (WPW) syndrome in a 91-year-old patient. The electrocardiogram (ECG) on admission showed a Mobitz type II AV block alternating with a third degree block on a wide-QRS ventricular rhythm beating at 35 cycles per minute. Read More

Estimation of the accessory pathway location of the manifest Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome using synthesized right-sided chest leads.

J Interv Card Electrophysiol 2019 Nov 15. Epub 2019 Nov 15.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, Chiba University Graduate School of Medicine, Chiba, Japan.

Purpose: The classification using QRS morphology of V1 lead is a useful simple predictor of accessory pathway location (type A, R or Rs pattern; type B, rS pattern; type C, QS or Qr pattern), but often leads to misdiagnosis of accessory pathway location, especially in types B and C. The synthesized 18-lead electrocardiography (ECG) derived from standard 12-lead ECG can provide virtual waveforms of right-sided chest leads. This study aimed to evaluate the usefulness of the right-sided chest lead ECG for prediction of accessory pathway location. Read More

Review: Danon disease: Review of natural history and recent advances.

Neuropathol Appl Neurobiol 2020 Jun 25;46(4):303-322. Epub 2019 Nov 25.

Neuromuscular Department, IRCCS San Camillo Hospital, Venice, Italy.

Danon disease is a severe multisystem disorder clinically characterized by hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, skeletal myopathy and mental retardation in male patients, and by a milder phenotype (predominantly involving cardiac muscle) in female patients. The disease is inherited as an X-linked dominant trait. The primary deficiency of lysosome-associated membrane protein-2 (LAMP-2) causes disruption of autophagy, leading to an impaired fusion of lysosomes to autophagosomes and biogenesis of lysosomes.
