Wolff-Pakinson-White Syndrome
is a
Wild Path Way (Wolf is a wild animal)
Atria and Ventricles.

Also Remember KENT's ART (Abnormal bundle is called Kent's. ART = Atrioventricular Re-entrant Tachycardia.)
EGG findings: Remember Dr. KENT wears SHORT Pants - ECG findings are 'Delta wave' and SHORT PR interval.
Symptom may be tachycardia, palpitation, syncope or may be asymptomatic- Remember you get palpitation on seeing a Wolf and your pulse goes up or you may faint; But if you are strong, you will be asymptomatic!
