In a study of fifteen cases of Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome by simultaneously recording the electrokymograms of the ascending aorta and pulmonary artery together with an electrocardiogram in the right anterior oblique position, we have found mechanical asynchronism in only five cases but have found evidence of delay in ejection from both ventricles, regardless of the side of the bundle of Kent, in most instances.
