A trans-septal approach or retrograde aortic approach was opted for mapping and ablation of left-sided accessory pathways, depending on operator's preference.
A left sided accessory pathway allows retrograde conduction from the ventricles to the atria while antegrade conduction occurs through the atrio-ventricular node and the right Tawara branch [3].
In some cases, accessory pathway is usually not dealt simultaneously with Mitral valve replacement by surgical division or Cryoablation or Radiofrequency ablation.
This case reported unexplicated syncope with unusual patterns of PS related to an atrioventricular accessory pathway (AP) was identified at electrophysiological study.
Success rate was similar to our study and no complication was demonstrated, but in this study duration of procedure was less than or equal to 3 hours (180 minutes) because of technical difficulties in localizing accessory pathway. In some cases accessory pathway location was unusual.
The diagnostic electrophysiological study was done which confirmed a left sided accessory pathway or ectopic atrial tachycardia focus in all cases.
