AIM: Most atrioventricular accessory pathways (AV-APs) exhibit Kent bundle physiology characterized by fast and non-decremental conduction properties. In contrast, atriofascicular APs, which are only capable of reaching slow levels of long antegrade decremental conduction, are uncommon. The aim of this study was to describe antegrade and/or retrograde AV-APs with unusual ...

Congenital spinal lipomas as a form of dysraphism are frequently reported in literature. A few studies have highlighted their histologic features and found them different from lipomas in other parts of the body. In a review of eight cases of spinal lipomas, we found heterotopic tissue in seven. Neural tissue, ...
