FREE subscriptions for doctors and students... click here
You have 3 open access pages.

Lown-Ganong-Levine syndrome is the acceleration of the conduction of the cardiac impulse with a normal QRS complex. In this condition there are:

  • short PR intervals and atrial arrhythmias
  • no delta waves

This occurs in the presence of a fast-conducting pathway within the atrioventricular node which causes a short PR interval but permits normal ventricular depolarisation.

The patient may give a history of palpitations.
