EP procedure: This is generally done in a cath lab using wires similar or pacemaker electrodes. They are inserted through blood vessels in the leg, and place into the heart. There they "read" electrical activity to determine where the abnormal conduction is taking place. Then the offending circuit can be severed using radio-frequency ablation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: Catheter ablation is considered a first line therapy for symptomatic WPW syndrome. It's highly effective in the majority of cases. It's generally safe with a low incidence of serious complications and since WPW can (rarely) result in sudden death, the benefit of ablation justifies the small risk. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Pauses are not beats: Pauses noted on holter rhythm monitoring usually follow an early extra beats, which can be a PVC or a pac. The natural pacemaker or sa node is trained to compensate for early beats by inserting a pause to reset the next beat to normal timing. Pauses themselves are not felt, but the next normal beat can be experienced as a palpitation on the chest. ...Read moreSee 12 more doctor answers
Special heart doc.: An interventional cardiologist is a specialized cardiologist. He or she has met all the requirementsfor general cardiology and passed the general cardiology boards. Then a special fellowship requiring several years is spent to lend expertise in the ability to open and dilate blood vessels with things like stents, or do procedures involving heart valaves or other complex, invasive treatments. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Atria or ventricles: Supra ventricular tachycardia: from upper chambers of the heart, is due to irritability (increased automaticity) or a short circuit (reentry), heart is usually structurally normal. Ventricular tachycardia: from lower chambers of the heart, due to irritability, can occur in normal hearts but is more often seen in hearts with scar tissue or weak hearts and can be life threatening. ...Read more
Life saver: An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (icd) system has leads (wires) that are inserted through the veins under the collarbone and threaded to the heart. The leads are attached to a box that goes under the skin. The box has a computer that continuously monitors the signals from your heart for a dangerous arrhythmia. If this occurs, the icd stops the arrhythmia by delivering an internal shock. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tale recorder: Holter monitors are tape recorders that monitor your heart beat through out a 24 hour period . You are connected by wires or electrodes to a recorder that you wear for a day . It is done to determine if there are cardiac irregularities that the patient may or may not be aware. ...Read more
