I have a couple of additional questions since my previous post. I have the left superior vena cava deformity. I read an article a while back stating that there have been many cases of patients developing inappropriate sinus tachycardia after RF ablation for AVNRT.. I was wondering if this was common knowledge, and if it is indeed true.
Also, I am on verapamil 40 mg 4x a day and atenolol 25mg 3x a day. This isn't controlling the sinus tach. I went to the ER a while back when I couldn't get the rate to go down. After a couple of injections through my IV they gave up. My HR wouldn't go below 140 for more than a minute or two, and they said they couldn't give me any more medication. Isn't there some type of medication more effective than what I am currently taking? Also, my local cardiologist is hesitant to send me to an electrophysiologist... he keeps trying different doses of my medication. I am getting tired of playing around with meds, and would like to have an EP study done. Any suggestions?
