Disease Pre-Excitation Syndromes

Name Pre-Excitation Syndromes
Synonyms Preexcitation Syndrome | Pre-Excitation Syndrome | Preexcitation Syndromes | Pre Excitation Syndromes
Definition A group of conditions in which HEART VENTRICLE activation by the atrial impulse is faster than the normal impulse conduction from the SINOATRIAL NODE. In these pre-excitation syndromes, atrial impulses often bypass the ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE delay and travel via ACCESSORY CONDUCTING PATHWAYS connecting the atrium directly to the BUNDLE OF HIS.
