Over The Counter Treatment For Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome
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
What is the treatment for Wolff-Parkinson-White (wpw) syndrome called in which extra pathway tissue is burned away during a cardiac catheterization?
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

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?
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
Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome in a 24 year-old, who gets an ablation to resolve an VF focus, now wonders about sports without an ICD.....?
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
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
