Best Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome Treatment
Depends: Like so many things in life...depends. If you are having lots of palpitations, dizziness, or feelings that you might pass out then you should go see a cardiologist who is subspecialized in electrophysiology.He can review your workup,order additional tests if necessary,and possibly eliminate the problem via a procedure called radiofrequency ablation. If no symptoms, then you likely need nothing. ...Read more
Heart condition: Wolff-parkinson-white syndrome is a heart condition in which there is an abnormal extra electrical pathway of the heart. The condition can lead to episodes of rapid heart rate (tachycardia). Wolff-parkinson-white syndrome is one of the most common causes of fast heart rate disorders in infants and children. ...Read more
Yes: In the proper setting.Get a more detailed answer ›
Fast heart rate: This is a syndrome of having a specific type of fast heart rate related to having an abnormal connection of cells between the top and bottom chambers of the heart. WPW can usually be cured by a procedure called ablation, where the abnormal band of tissue is gently burned away. ...Read more
Heart Arrhythmia: Largely, this is a genetic disorder - so there is no reason to think it can be caused by ssris. The symptom list is long and available online. Mostly they relate to cardiac function - i.e., chest pain, weakness, fatigue, etc. Here's more info than you might want: https://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/wolff%e2%80%93parkinson%e2%80%93white_syndrome best! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have Wolff Parkinson white syndrome with narrow tachycardia and I'm on beta blocker! Is this a good medication?
Yes: Beta blockers can help to avoid episodes of tachycardia, but ultimately you may benefit from an interventional approach to eliminate the problem. ...Read more
Is Cogard better at treating SVT from Wolff Parkinson white syndrome than propranolol? Or is propranolol best?
Unclear: I could not find any clear studies in a quick search showing one to be superior to the other. Check with a cardiologist. ...Read more
Heart problem: Wolff-parkinson-white syndrome is a disorder of electrical conduction of the heart. Patients with WPW can have rapid heart beat (tachycardia) and very rarely sudden cardiac death. The tachycardia can be treated by medications. The abnormal conduction is due to an extra electrical pathway (bypass tract) in the heart. There are techniques to destroy the extra pathway that will cure wpw. ...Read more
WPW: Wpw is a syndrome with bypass tracts that make rapid heart action possible. Atrial fibrillation is a rapid disordered heart rhythm that is fairly common. When associated with WPW it can be fatal because of too fast conduction of impulses. They are different conditions but when they happen together tragedy can result. ...Read more
What is the treatment for Wolff-Parkinson-White (wpw) syndrome called in which extra pathway tissue is burned away during a cardiac catheterization?
Pre-excitation: Wpw syndrome is commonly diagnosed on the basis of the surface ECG in an asymptomatic individual. In this case it is manifested as a delta wave, which is a slurred upstroke in the qrs complex that is associated with a short pr interval. The short pr interval and slurring of the qrs complex is actually the impulse making it through to the ventricles prematurely (across the accessory pathway) withou. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not directly: Wpw is a heart condition associated with cardiac arrhythmia. The classic arrhythmia is supraventricular tachycardia. More serious rhythm problems can also occur and there is an increased risk of sudden death. During arrhythmia, cardiac output can drop, and some people have seizures during times of low cardiac output from arrhythmia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Congenital: Wpw is the syndrome associated with an extra (or accessory) pathway between the top (atria) and bottom (ventricle) chambers of the heart. Yes this is present from birth. Patients with the extra electrical connection may have episodes of extreme tachycardia (rapid heart beat). This can be treated with medication or by ablating the extra pathway in a cath lab. ...Read more
Yes: This is usually not a problem.Get a more detailed answer ›
Been on Propranolol 20 mg 2 x daily for Wolff Parkinson white syndrome. Everyone tells me it's unsafe to take beta blocker for WPW? Is this true?
No: This is an arrhythmia that is caused by an abnormal electrical connection between the top and bottom chambers of the heart. If it causes symptoms (chest pain, shortness of breath, fainting), you need to talk to an electrophysiologist (doctor that specializes in heart rhythm problems) who can perform an ablation that is usually curative. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Palpitations: Usually the first sign other than being picked up on an EKG by accident, is in a person who develops a fast heart rate (an arrhythmia classified as supraventricular tachycardia). On occasion, the fast heart rate can lead to passing out (syncopal) episodes, so that will be the presenting symptom. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No.: Wolf parkinson white syndrome, aka pre-excitation due to the presence of an accessory pathway would not cause pvc's. Abnormal conduction of atrial impulses through the accessory pathway will lead to fast heart rates at times, this can become life threatening especially in the setting of atrial fibrillation with an inappropriately high rate of conduction leading to ventricular fibrillation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Which beta blocker has the least side effects and is the safest and best tolerated? I have Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome & can't find a suitable one
Varies: All beta blockers have similar side effects but affect different people in different ways. Talk with your doctor about trying Nadolol or atenolol. At your age with wpw, i would consider an electrophysiology study (eps) for risk stratification and possible catheter ablation. That could eliminate the need for beta blockers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
