Whats the best trestment for wolf parkinson white syndrome ?

Depends: Like so many things in life...depends. If you are having lots of palpitations, dizziness, or feelings that you might pass out then you should go see a cardiologist who is subspecialized in electrophysiology.He can review your workup,order additional tests if necessary,and possibly eliminate the problem via a procedure called radiofrequency ablation. If no symptoms, then you likely need nothing. ...Read more

My partner suffers from Wolf parkinson white syndrome is it hereditry?

My partner suffers from Wolf parkinson white syndrome is it hereditry?

Sometimes: A familial form of WPW syndrome has been reported as an autosomal dominant trait. 3.4% have a 1st degree relative with preexcitation syndrome. However, this claims are based on small studies. Two genetic studies of three families, found abnormalities in chromosome 7. Missense mutation were identified in the PRKAG2 gene which encodes the gamma -2 regulatory subunit of AMP-activated protein kinase ...Read more

What is treatment for wolf parkinson white syndrome?

Various: The heart rhythm abnormalities associated with wolff-parkinson-white syndrome can be treated with a variety of antiarrhythmic medications. The arrhythmias can also be cured by altering the electrical structure of the heart using an invasive procedure called "ablation". ...Read more

Can anyone have "wolf-parkinson-white syndrome?

Can anyone have "wolf-parkinson-white syndrome?

WPW: Yes. Wpw is the presence of ventricular pre-excitation due to an accessory pathway which can result in fast heart rhythms (i.e. Supra ventricular tachycardia). Risk stratification is important to determine the risk of sudden cardiac death. The main risk during these fast rhythms is usually syncope (fainting). Treatment involves ablation. I would speak with your cardiologist. ...Read more

What is wolf-parkinson-white-heart syndrome.?

What is wolf-parkinson-white-heart syndrome.?

Heart problem: Wolff-parkinson-white syndrome is a disorder of electrical conduction of the heart. Patients with WPW can have rapid heart beat (tachycardia) and very rarely sudden cardiac death. The tachycardia can be treated by medications. The abnormal conduction is due to an extra electrical pathway (bypass tract) in the heart. There are techniques to destroy the extra pathway that will cure wpw. ...Read more

What's the difference between an svt, wolf-parkinson-white syndrome, and fibrilations?

What's the difference between an svt, wolf-parkinson-white syndrome, and  fibrilations?

SVT, WPW, Afib: Svt or supraventricular tachycardia is a condition in which the upper chamber of the heart causes the heart to beat very fast. Wpw or wolf parkinson white syndrome is a condition where te heart has a propensity to abnormal electrical conduction that may predispose people to have svt, atrial fibrillation (where the upper chamber of the heart beats chaotically), or other heart rhythm issues. ...Read more

If I have tachycardia does that mean I also have wolf Parkinson white syndrome? What's difference if not? What does that mean if so?

If I have tachycardia does that mean I also have wolf Parkinson white syndrome? What's difference if not? What does that mean if so?

Not usually WPW: Tachycardia, or a rapid heart rate (more than 120 beats per minute in an adult) happens all the time to everybody in certain circumstances (running, fear, excitement, etc ). Some extreme forms of tachycardia are due to an electrical defect in the heart's conduction system & Wolf-Parkinson-White Syndrome is an uncommon form of it. An EKG can sometimes tell the cause of tachycardia, but not always ...Read more

What is the the difference between wolf Parkinson's white syndrome and atrial fibrillation?

What is the the difference between wolf Parkinson's white syndrome and atrial fibrillation?

WPW: Wpw is a syndrome with bypass tracts that make rapid heart action possible. Atrial fibrillation is a rapid disordered heart rhythm that is fairly common. When associated with WPW it can be fatal because of too fast conduction of impulses. They are different conditions but when they happen together tragedy can result. ...Read more

I have wolf-parkinson-white syndrome with an svt. Would this cause chest pain? If so would the pain be caused by an "episode"?

WPW: Wpw is associated with svt and svt can certainly be symptomatic with chest pain. The pain would be related to the "episode". When folks have this we often have an electrophysiologist ablate the bypass tract to attempt to substantially cure the problem. ...Read more

How how would heart rate get if I had Wolf-Parkinson-white syndrome? My heart rate is usually in the 70s-80s. Sometime 100+ during activity.

How how would heart rate get if I had Wolf-Parkinson-white syndrome? My heart rate is usually in the 70s-80s. Sometime 100+ during activity.

WPW heart rate: The heart rate may accelerate from 120-200 beats per minute, but can also be associated with atrial fibrillation which can be in the 300's and even degenerate into ventricular fibrillation. It can also be normal. The pre-excitation syndrome can be diagnosed by ECG. Please see your PMD. ...Read more

Does wolf parkinson white syndrome cause fluid to build up in my daughter's legs?

No: Wolff-parkinson-white (WPW) syndrome describes a condition where there are ECG abnormalities and a predisposition to a rapid heart rate known as supraventricular tachycardia (svt). In almost all patients, the heart function is normal. Very rarely a weak heart muscle is present in patients with WPW and they may have symptoms of heart failure. Even in this setting isolated leg swelling is not seen. ...Read more
