Abstract

At electrophysiologic study in a patient with the Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, intracardiac catheter recordings demonstrated a deflection that occurred 30 ms before ventricular activation. The rapid deflection was present during ventricular preexcitation but not during normal atrioventricular conduction. All QRS complexes were preexcited to varying degrees during atrial fibrillation, yet the deflection consistently preceded ventricular activation by 30 ms. This deflection most likely represents the rare recording of a Kent bundle depolarization with an intracardiac electrode catheter.
