Abstract

Since September 1990, radiofrequency ablation1,2 has replaced surgery as the curative treatment of choice for patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome in our institution. The patients are referred to surgery only if radiofrequency ablation is unsuccessful. However, in many institutions surgery remains the primary option for patients requiring curative treatment. It is not known whether or not patients with recurrent accessory pathway conduction after surgical ablation can be safely and successfully cured by radiofrequency ablation. In this communication we report our experience with successful radiofrequency ablation in 3 patients who had recurrent accessory pathway conduction after surgical ablation.
