[Romano-Ward syndrome and left stellectomy. General review apropos of a recent case].

[Article in French]


A new familial case of the Romano-Ward syndrome in a young girl of 21 years is reported. A progressive worsening of the condition with multiple syncopal attacks, together with difficulty in controlling the patient, lead us to carry out a left stellate ganglionectomy. The operation did not lead to any shortening of the QT interval. It appeared in the end that propranolol was the most effective way of preventing the syncopal attacks.
