Forty-one consecutive children with the Wolff-Parkison-White (1-15 years: mean 8 years), 22 symptomatic [including 20 with supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) and one with ventricular fibrillation (VF) episode - Group A) and 19 asymptomatic (Group B)], underwent transoesophageal electrophysiological examination. The mean anterograde effective refractory period of the anomalous connection (AERPAC) was 249 ± 34 ms with no significant difference between the two groups. However, values of <220 ms were more frequently observed in Group A than in Group B (23% vs 11% Pus). The effective atrial refractory period was significantly shorter in Group A (183 ± 34ms) than in Group B (220 ± 24 ms) (P
