Two hundred and eight patients underwent operative therapy of supraventricular tachycardia between June 1984 and June 1986. There were 196 patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, one with AV nodal reentry, two with atrial flutter, one with ectopic atrial tachycardia, three with paroxysmal sinus tachycardia, and five with atrial fibrillation. Map guided or direct surgery was performed in all patients except the three with atrial fibrillation. Direct surgery was generally successful with failures including one patient with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, one with atrial flutter, and the three patients with paroxysmal sinus tachycardia. There was no mortality. Major complications were uncommon and included three resternotomies for bleeding, one chylopericardium. Six patients required reoperation.
