Variants of Ventricular Preexcitation: Recognition andTreatment provides a unique opportunity for generalcardiologists and electrophysiologists to find in one text theintricacies of recognizing and treating a group of disorders thathas intrigued physicians for more than 100 years.”

--from the Foreword by Mark E. Josephson, MD, Chief,Cardiovascular Division, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center,Boston, USA

Drs Sternick and Wellens combine their expertise in thediagnosis and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias to bring you thiscomplete overview of decrementally conducting accessory pathwaysand their role in cardiac arrhythmias.

This is the first book dedicated to these special types ofaccessory pathways, their recognition and management. By coveringthe uncommon varieties of ventricular preexcitation, this booksupports you in improving patient care by:

  • Helping you to identify decrementally conducting AV fibers-which comprise 3-5 % of all accessory AV pathways
  • Explaining exactly what information can be obtained from the12-lead ECG
  • Showing how to identify and localize these pathways during anelectrophysiologic study
  • Detailing the proper treatment and how to treat thesepatients

By explaining the fundamental pathophysiology as well as thediverse clinical presentation of arrhythmias, Drs Sternick andWellens demystify the subject of the different variants ofdecrementally conducting accessory pathways leading to ventricularpre-excitation and their role in cardiac arrhythmias.
