What is treatment for wolf parkinson white syndrome?

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".

Treatment for Parkinson's plus copral tunnel syndrome on the left?

Rx PD & CTS: Two of the effective treatments for Parkinsons and carpal tunnel syndrome are a medicine (levodopa-carbidopa) and wrist splinting at night time. There are other treatments too. What treatments do you use?

What is the definitive treatment for Wolff-Parkinson-White (wpw) syndrome?

What is the definitive treatment for Wolff-Parkinson-White (wpw) syndrome?

Ablation: Ablation of the aberrant fiber, typically using catheters through the groin (rather than open heart surgery), will typically 'cure' the condition and is successful in 90-95% of cases.

Is there an 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.

Should pr interval become normal after treatment for wolff parkinson syndrome with meds?

Typically not: An ablation of the accessory pathway should result in a normal ecg. Medical management should prevent attacks of tachycardia (or at least try to), but the pr interval will remain short.

Treatment for closed eye syndrome associated with Parkinson's disease?

Treatment for closed eye syndrome associated with Parkinson's disease?

See your neurologist: Parkinson's disease affects voluntary muscle movement in any part of the body. If the eyelid is not lifting unless you do so with your fingers, this is called ptosis. It may be associated with parkinson's but can also occur on its own. Treatment may include surgical repair. If the lid is forcefully shut and cannot be easily lifted, this is a spasm which may need different treatment.

Symptomatic wolf Parkinson's white treatment? Why not beta blockers for the svt?

Symptomatic wolf Parkinson's white treatment? Why not beta blockers for the svt?

Wpw: We usually recommend ablation in symptomatic WPW svt. There is potential for cure, and if the patient is young can obviate a lifetime of meds and symptomatic tachyarrhythmia.

Is Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome fatal? What are the current treatments?

No: In and of itself WPW is not fatal unless it is combined with other heart condition -- current treatments include medications and radio frequency catheter ablation and other surgical measures.

I have afib and wolf parkinson white...symptoms are chest pain, shortness of breath, etc what are the treatments for those conditions?

I have afib and wolf parkinson white...symptoms are chest pain, shortness of breath, etc what are the treatments for those conditions?

Treatments vary: Depending on the nature of the cause of your symptoms. With atrial fibrillation and WPW there can be a number of different options. This is not something that can be easily addressed over the internet. You need to establish or reestablish with a health care professional who can address your concerns and manage your symptoms. Get checked out today. Cardiac Electrophysiologist would probably be best

Parkinson's disease treatment options, what to do?

Tremors: Sinemet (carbidopa and levodopa) is what our neurologists use. Consult your pcp for other options.

Parkinson's disease: Check out http://www. Drugs. Com/sfx/ropinirole-side-effects. Html for side effects of ropinirole and http://www. Drugs. Com/sfx/carbidopa-levodopa-side-effects. Html for side effects of generic carbidopa/levodopa (syndopa plus is brand name in india, not sold in states). Movement disorders, ironically, are major concern of these meds eg dyskinesias such as choreiform, dystonia, etc.

My dad has been suffering from parkinson for last 8 years, every treatment we took but no any improvement, can he use ceragem massager for treatment?

My dad has been suffering from parkinson for last 8 years, every treatment we took but no any improvement, can he use ceragem massager for treatment?

Review diagnosis: If the regular treatments for parkinson's have not worked, perhaps this is actually one of the parkinson's mimics. I've seen familial tremor misdiagnosed as parkinson's; I've known one man whose job exposed him to toxic levels of manganese who recovered fully when treated for this. There are others. Until we know what this is, I can't recommend the supposedly magic massager.

Any nutritional supplements or treatment for Parkinson's disease?

Any nutritional supplements or treatment for Parkinson's disease?

Yes, Absolutely!!: Dopamine meds are mainstay of treatment. Modern therapy recommends longer lasting, milder potency meds first: Azilect (mao-b selective inhibitor) & Dopamine agonists (requip xl/mirapex er/neupro). After they've been maximized & stronger meds ate needed to adequately manage symptoms, then sinemet +/- Comtan (stalevo (carbidopa and levodopa and entacapone) is both together) are begun. Good supplements: coq10, mvi, b-complex, folate, asa.

What is the treatment for Parkinson's disease?

What is the treatment for Parkinson's disease?

Neurologist: The first thing is to make the proper diagnosis. 32 is pretty young for parkinson's disease. There are other disorders that have some of the similar symptoms that have different treatments and prognosis. A neurologist is your point of contact to help with diagnosis and treatment. The mainstay of treatment is medications. When these fail, there are some that are amenable to surgery.

Which is the best treatment of Parkinson's disease?

Which is the best treatment of Parkinson's disease?

Depends on severity: Initially, may be best to use a Dopamine agonist (ropinorole, pramipexole, etc). Later l-dopa, and maybe add entacapone. If severe, and over 5-7 yrs, perhaps deep brain stimulation. Azilect (rasagiline) may be useful at times. In essence, different meds may be used best at different stages. This is the "art of medicine".

What is the best new treatment for Parkinson's disease?

What is the best new treatment for Parkinson's disease?

Azilect (rasagiline) + Other Meds: Dopamine meds are mainstay of treatment. Modern therapy recommends longer lasting, milder potency meds first: Azilect (mao-b selective inhibitor) & Dopamine agonists (requip xl/mirapex er/neupro). After they've been maximized & stronger meds are needed to adequately manage symptoms, then sinemet +/- Comtan (stalevo (carbidopa and levodopa and entacapone) is both together) are begun. Tailor rx with side effects in mind for each person.

Can you tell me in the treatment of Parkinson's disease?

Can you tell me in the treatment of Parkinson's disease?

Generic answer: Although very complex, early mild disease can be treated with dopamine agonists, and maybe start Azilect, (rasagiline) but as disease progresses, tend to start L-DOPA, with carbidopa, and maybe ultimately entacapone. With more advance disease, might use dopamine agonists in combination, but eventually Deep Brain Stimulation may be best approach, for severe disease.
