Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pregnancy is related to an increased frequency of arrhythmias in asymptomatic patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which might lead to sudden death. A 40-year-old woman, with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome which was not diagnosed until pregnancy, presented in the 34th week with an atrial fibrillation, with high risk criteria for ventricular fibrillation. Intravenous ajmaline was given to convert the tachyarrhythmia to sinus rhythm. We obtained an excellent maternal control with no maternal or fetal adverse effects.
