Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) Syndrome is a form of supraventricular techycardia. WPW Syndrome happens when the heart's electrical signal re-enters the atria over an abnormal extra pathway that bypasses the normal electrical system.
This extra pathway allows electrical signals to pass between the ventricles and the atria.
Signals on this extra pathway disrupts the normal timing of the heart's electrical system, causing the atria and ventricles to beat too fast.
