Due to the clinical manifestations, an electrophysiological study (EPS) was performed aiming to map and ablate the accessory pathway (3).
This turf reconfiguration will likely come about due to looming technologic advances, including genomic screening for susceptibility to sudden cardiac death, noninvasive mapping of the heart to pinpoint the site of ventricular tachycardia or accessory pathways, noninvasive autonomic imaging of sympathetic enervation of the heart, and vagal imaging of the ventricle.
The peak concentration of cTnI was higher for the left accessory pathway ablation than for the right accessory pathway ablation.
According to the surface electrocardiogram given in Figures 1 and 2 the accessory pathway seems to be located to the anteroseptal region and as it is well known that preexcitation might be responsible for abnormal repolarization vector.
