Conference paper


During the past 15 years, the surgical approach to treatment of tachycardias has been successfully employed, but mainly in adult patients [1–5]. Recent advances, both in electrophysiology and surgical technique, have resulted in a similar high success rate in children [2]. In this paper, we describe our surgical experience, emphasizing the unique features of Wolff-ParkinsonWhite syndrome (WPW) and ventricular tachycardia (VT) in children.
