Abstract

A case of type B Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, with intractable atrial fibrillation, underwent surgical division of a right-sided accessory atrioventricular bundle of Kent. Pre-excitation and complicating tachyarrhythmias were henceforth abolished for 6 weeks, when the patient died of infective endocarditis. Histological examination showed a divided Kent's accessory atrioventricular pathway and apparently functionless James and Mahaim fibres.
