Svt After Ablation
I have a 17 yr old boy that has had ablation for SVT 2 years ago. Is it possible that it did not take? He is having fluutering shortness of breath, chest pains high blood pressure, fast heart rate.
How many days I have to wait after SVT ablation to masturbate? My dr. Said that I have to wait 10days to make sex, it is truth for masturbation too? Thx
Go for it: Generally speaking, if the ablation worked, it worked. Sexual activity is no better or worse than any other activity for your heart and if you go back into abnormal rhythm, you would have soon anyway. Just wait a couple of days after your procedure before engaging any activity which puts strain on the groin to avoid bleeding or oozing at the puncture sites where the sheaths were inserted. Enjoy! ...Read more
Post svt ablation: Rf ablation requires a process of maturation wherein aberrant conduction that have been treated require a few weeks before they cease to conduct. During that maturation time frame the risk of recurrent arrhythmia remains. Many patients might benefit by continuing rate /rhythm protective meds for the first few weeks following ablation. Hyperadrenergic stimulation might provoke such events. ...Read more
After SVT ablation, dr. Said that I have to wait 10 days to have sex, because they made me radiations. What is radiation, why I have to wait 10 days? Thx!
Svt ablation: Radiation is Xray exposure. You are exposed to radiation during SVT ...Read more
I take propranolol 20 mg 3 times daily for SVT after having a failed ablation. Can longterm use of this medication cause heart failure?
It depends on the underlying etiology of the SVT, and your personal individual risks (i.e. heredity, lifestyle, and other co-morbidities).
Moreover, the type of SVT also has an influence. .. of associated success with ablations. Therefore, a complete electrophysiological
assessment must be borne in mind concomitantly with the rest of your body. ... to
determine the risk of recurrence. ...Read more
If I had an ablation for SVT back in 2010, how is it possible that I'm just now starting to have episodes of SVT again?
Yes.: Svt, (supraventricular tachycardia) is a short-circuit of the normal heart conduction pathways. Usually there is a small area that, if removed, would Prohibit the circuit from conducting and therefore block the svt. During ablation, a catheter is placed in this area of the heart, and the tip generates rf energy to scar the heart tissue in a small area, which prevents it from conducting electricity. ...Read more
What they use for SVT ablation, local or total anesthesia? I would prefer total anasthesia if I could. Can I?
What are the eligibility reqs for ablation (to correct svt)? Still having hr issues despite 2 yrs of meds and I don't like the side effects.
There are several: Persistent svt despite medical therapy is a common indication for catheter ablation. More potentially serious arrhythmias are often treated with ablation before a trial of medication. ...Read more
I recently been diagnosed with svt. I decided to have the ablation done. I'm extremely scared to do this. Is this a common procedure and is it safe?
Yes, usually: In experienced hands it is a very safe and successful procedure. Volume equates to better outcomes for most procedures, meaning you want someone who has done thousands of procedures and not just a few and want it to be done at a high volume center. ...Read more
I am to undergo an ablation procedure 8/13 & just received notice of "Technical Denial." Will I now die from not having ablation for my longterm SVT?
Svt, when not undergoing ablation, would it be life-threatening in the future? Is it possible to use medicine/ beta bloc, even if it means a lifetime?
Not life threatening: But, depends on type of svt. Generally svt always occurs the same way - same symptoms every episode- since the short circuit is a fixed path, but this is not always true. ...Read more
Very effectively.: The supraventricular tachycardia is a short-circuit of the normal heart conduction pathways. Usually there is a small area that, if removed, would Prohibit the circuit from conducting and therefore block the svt. The catheter tip generates rf energy to scar the heart tissue in a small area, which prevents it from conducting electricity. ...Read more
You can fly: In general, there are few restrictions after an uncomplicated svt ablation. Your physician may ask you to avoid putting excess strain on the groin (s) for a few days to ensure the blood vessels used for catheter access heal adequately. You should be back to a normal routine far earlier than 6 weeks. ...Read more
Is a few seconds vt episodes were caught on holter strong enough reason to send me undergo ablation? I have a history of intermitten SVT as well.
Discuss with: Your cardiologist who knows your history and test results the best and they can help you find the best option for your individual situation. ...Read more
If I have frequent unsustained SVT's and Frequent PAC's uncured by medication. And I don't want the cardiac ablation. What are the consequences of not having this invasive procedure?
Catheter ablation does have some serious risks, but they are rare. But the risks may not be worth it for people who have few symptoms. Most PACs/SVT run a benign course however if you have frequent PACs/SVTs then the risk of continuing without ablation include developing AF and SVT. Fast uncontrolled SVTs could result in fainting spells, cardiac failure and sudden death.

Depends: This is usually not an issue of healing but of getting the right destruction of the right area of the heart. Healing will most likely be completed in a matter of a week but it is not a healing issue. Discuss with your cardiologist/electophysiologist and have a complete understanding prior to the procedure unless done emergently. Monitoring may be in order for a while after the procedure. ...Read more
Had an SVT ablation a month ago woke up this morning and my right groin and hip area is swollen what could it be?
Possible hematoma: The swelling may represent a hematoma in the area adjacent to where the catheters were placed in the groin. Ultrasound evaluation of that area should rule it out if the swelling persists. ...Read more
Had a SVT ablation done on Dec 30. Feeling very dizzy and sick today not sure what to do. Also experiencing a lot of pain at one incision site.?
Scheduled for an ablation to fix what they " think" is svt. It's never been recorded as that before but I get a racing heart at times. Yes or no?
SVT?: Ask your doctor if they monitored you will enough at this point with haltors or events recorder to confirm one type versesw another? ...Read more
2months ago my 20 yr son had ablation for wpw. He is still symptomatic. He wore a 21 day monitor. Diangosis paroxysmal svt, hr hi 203, he's 20. Serious?
My 8yo son has cardiac svt. He had an ablation last year, but it was unsuccessful because his problem area lies in the av node. Can ablation solve this without installing a pacemaker?
Very possibly: My understanding is AV nodal reentrant tachycardia is the most common cause of supraventricular tachycardia. Ablation may be the preferred treatment, especially in a child, who would experience years of freedom from symptoms. Catheter ablation carries a 90% success rate, which means 10% may need further treatment. Repeat ablation can be done with a similarly high success rate. I hope he does well. ...Read more
What's the difference between catheter ablation and radiofrequency ablation for treating arrhythmias like svt?
General term: Catheter ablation is a general term referring to elimination of electrical conduction in very specific areas of the heart. Two primary technologies are used to perform catheter ablation. Radiofrequency energy is a rapidly alternating electrical current that generates heat at the point of catheter contact. Cryo ablation uses super cooled nitrogen to freeze at the point of of catheter contact. ...Read more
