So as a disease process WPW's treatment is individualized. Every other person will have a different regimen. AV nodal blockade can be ok, in some circumstances and not in others. It is VERY important that rather than asking us, you consult with your Cardiologist , who will offer you treatment best suited to your underlying disease process.

This is a very interesting question. If you truly have WPW, your management (& answer to such a question) should be by your cardiologist. If it is known that you have only orthodromic AVRT (genarally a concealed accessory pathway) then propranolol could be used safely. Otherwise, it could pose danger if you develop atrial fib. However, the modern treatment for WPW w/ frequent SVT is ablation.
