Patients with aWolff-Parkinson-White WPW pattern on their ECG can experience symptoms suchas syncope, palpitations, supraventricular tachycardia, and atrialfibrillation, or they can be asymptomatic aWPW. All patients with WPW,regardless of the presence or absence of symptoms, are at risk of sudden death.Therefore, it is recommended that younger patients with WPW undergo studies todetermine their risk. We report a previously asymptomatic WPW patientidentified as high risk for sudden death due to rapid conduction down her accessorypathway during atrial fibrillation induced during a trans-esophagealelectrophysiology study.
