Is it true that wolff-parkinson-white syndrome related to Parkinson's disease?

No, thankfully!! They only share a common word in the name. They are in no way related. Wpw is an electrical conduction defect in the heart. Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder featuring physical symptoms such tremor of limbs at rest, slow movements & stiff (rigid) muscles causing quiet facial emotions, softer voice, bent forward head & neck posture, decreased arm swing, slow-shuffled walk, etc.
No. 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 cardia death. Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder of the brain causing problems with movement.

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?

Depends. There are different types of WPW. You should query YOUR CARDIOLOGIST and seek the opinion of a cardiologist who has done subspecialty training in HEART RHYTHM disease with expertise in RFA (radio frequency ablation). Read more...

Repeat monitor. Risk of sudden cardiac death in the setting of WPW depends on the rate of tachycardia prior to ablation. Ultimately safety of resuming sports activity will require clearance from your cardiologist and possibly a repeat monitor as part of that assessment. In some cases of WPW patients who have had ablation may still have breakthrough episodes of "re-entry" which is the mechanism of the arrhythmia. Read more...
Good question. Depends on how successful the ablation was. Highly suggest you discuss this with the cardiologist who did your ablation. Good luck. Read more...

Wpw. In severe cases of Wpw a fib can degenerate into vf causing a life-threatening situation. Ablation of the accessory pathway is critical to eradicate the focus of the problem and subsequently tested. After observation and evidence of no recurrence of the accessory pathway no further intervention is generally needed. If Wpw does not recur after 6 months the condition is felt to be cured.

Test. If the ablation was successful, with ECG documentation of loss of the delta wave and normal exercise tolerance on stress testing,there should be no reason to restrict the patients' activities. Read more...
VF in WPW. Patients with WPW present with VF if they develop atrial fibrillation which degenerates into VF due to rapid conduction antegrade over the accessory pathway, sometimes facilitated by the administration of an AV nodal blocking agent. If the patient had one bypass tract that was ablated, and he no longer has antegrade preexcitation, the likelihood of recurrent VF is very low, and an ICD is not indicated. Read more...
Watchful observation. This is a very interesting case, fortunately it's not too common. I think if the EP specialist who had treated this young man is confident that he had ablated the target accessory pathway thus removing the threat permanently, then it is safe for him to resume his activities without limitation or additional ICD, provided that the previous cardiac arrest was uneventful and no evidence of target organ damage was noted. Additional option is to insert a small loop recorder for long term monitoring, up to 3 years, for possible recurrence or other arrhythmias. Read more...
My advice would B 2- -have such a pacemaker put in place. But the hooker is sports. Injuries can B done 2 the implant itself in any contact sport. But just 4 every day life, who knows where U will B the next time U go into VF. IF no ones around,U die. & Ur risk is much higher in partaking in sports. I would hit the books hard & get a good education for a professional occupation. Read more...
