    Former Auburn DE Quentin Groves underwent heart surgery on 3/27 to alleviate a rapid heart beat, according to Adam Schefter of NFL.com.

    According to wiki, Portland TrailBlazer, and former Longhorn, LaMarcus Aldridge also has WPW syndrome.

    Nice thing about it is that the radiofrequency ablation (which it sounds as if was done) can often cure it. I doubt this becomes a deciding factor in where he ends up getting drafted.

    I may need this one day for my A-fib. It only happens every 2-3 years but it is bothersome when it does. It is all the result of a fluke heart virus that almost killed me. I'm completely healthy now but the side effect was the A-fib. I'm waiting for ablation to become more advanced.
