A friend of mine has it, as far as ICDs go (since we will probably end up talking about that :) WPW is a class III indicator meaning it is not a qualification for an ICD...it is best treated with an ablation and most cases can be cured...WPW has a very low rate of SCD. It's a rapid-reentrant tachycardia caused by an extra pathway in the heart. Most can be ablated out and for the most part, cured :) It presents as tachycardia or as a delta wave on the EKG, but sometimes the wave cannot be detected or shown.
