PMID:  6381927     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Ventricular preexcitation occurs when, in relation to atrial events, some or all of the ventricular muscle is activated earlier by the atrial impulse than would be expected if conduction of the impulse activated the ventricles by way of the normal atrioventricular conduction system. The purpose of this article is to review the pathophysiology of the variants of preexcitation and to discuss the therapeutic approach to patients who have tachyarrhythmias.
