ABSTRACT:
Catheter ablation of accessory pathways (AP) in Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW) reaches up to 90% efficacy. One of possible failure reasons is an atypical AP localization. In this case we present a 19-years old patient with a rare, epicardial accessory pathway (AP) connecting right atrial auricle (RAA) with right ventricle (RV) that was successfully removed after epicardial radiofrequency (RF) ablation.
