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!

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!
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

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.

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.
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
