Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome in Children

Brief description of study

The purpose of this research is to collect data that the researchers hope will help understand Wolff-ParkinsonWhite Syndrome (WPWS). he overarching goal is to provide information about the outcomes of children with symptomatic and asymptomatic WPW and to improve the risk assessment using clinical and EPS data. This will be a 10-year-long observational, multicenter, multinational database. Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW) is a condition which causes a heart rhythm abnormality. In most hearts, there is a single electrical pathway that causing heart to beat. People with WPW have an extra electrical pathway between the heart's upper chambers (atria) and lower chambers (ventricles), causing the ventricles to contract early and resulting in a rapid heartbeat (tachycardia). Many individuals with WPW don't have any symptoms (asymptomatic), while others experience symptoms such as hard or irregular heartbeats (palpitations), dizziness, shortness of breath, and sometimes fainting. Rarely, WPW can cause more life-threatening arrhythmias or sudden death.
