Nonsustained Ventricular Tachycardia
Is an EP study worth the risks in someone with multiple episodes NSVT (Non-Sustained ventricular tachycardia)? What can I gain from this??
Perhaps: If the problem is pathological RFA is possible. But at the moment, without a portable EKG monitoring to show it is significant I would wait. Nonetheless, your own cardiologist is the best advocate, Ask. ...Read more
Rapid heart beat is a symptom in which a person's heart is beating fast. A fast heart rate can be normal if a person is excited or exercising. Sometimes a rapid rate is called sinus tachycardia, atrial flutter, or atrial fibrillation, etc..., depending on the type of arrhythmia (heart ...Read more
Yes: But more important is looking for the reason you may have non-sustained VT. This would require a detailed evaluation by your physician. ...Read more
I've had multiple long runs of monomorphic Non-Sustained Ventricular tachycardia. Echo & stress test normal. What causes this?
Many possible causes: certainly structural heart disease such as coronary disease or heart muscle disease can cause ventricular tachycardia and in the absence of this electrolyte abnormalities such high or low potassium or magnesium or other conditions such as right ventricular outflow tract navy or brugada syndrome or long QT syndrome or other genetic conditions can cause ventricular tachycardia ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Normal stress test, normal CTA w/calcium score, normal echo. I had 2 runs of non sustained ventricular tachycardia. What can cause this? I am Only 20
How can I be tested for Brugada syndrome? ECG has no indication but I've had a few runs of non sustained, monomorphic ventricular tachycardia.
Stress testing: testing for Brugada requires an EKG to look for the Brugada pattern. If present then Electrophysiologic testing is done to see if the pattern can be induced. It is genetic. Is there a history of sudden cardiac death in your family? Talk to your primary care provider about it. ...Read more
Depends: Ventricular tachycardia in the presence of structural hear disease is at risk of sudden death. However V Tach in a normal heart or without underlying heart disease is benign. It can cause palpitation but the risk of death is low. It often originates in the right side of the heart and can be treated with medicine or cured by ablation ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No definite rules...: Can differentiate these 2 arrhythmia types, although ventricular tachycardia generally causes more severe symptoms such as chest pain, fainting and even a cardiac arrest. Atrial tachycardia almost never causes cardiac arrest, although can be felt as palpitations with lightheadedness or difficulty breathing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What to do if I have nonsustained ventricular tachycardia, would this be classed as a long term heart disease?
Yes: this has to be studied and to try and determine why this occurred. VT can be dangerous if it becomes sustained. Speak to a cardiologist about the plans for you , they may consider placing an internal monitor that fires when you go into a VT. ...Read more
