I saw my EP today for a follow-up to my ablation that he did a little over a month ago. He said he was please with my current EKG, and released me from his care. He informed me that I DID NOT in fact have Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome as was first diagnosed, but rather another form of AVRT referred to as a "concealed accessory pathway" sometimes referred to as "Circus Motion Tachycardia". The final determination wasn't known until the results of the EP were closely studied. He reaffirmed that I was his "dream patient" due mostly to a little opening in the ventricular septum. About 2% of the population has this little anomoly which allowed him to pass the catheter thru the opening into the left atria thus avoiding a transeptal puncture. This avoided an injury that takes some time to heal. WHile I was there today I was administered another EKG. The results are as follows:
Vent. Rate: 82bpm
PR interval: 142ms
QRS Duration: 84ms
P-R-T axes: 40 28 23
Although normal I'm still feeling some PVCs, and today has been a very active day. It bothers me as I associate them with an uncoming bout of SVT.
I was given a clean bill of health and told to "Celebrate with a double cappacino". I think I'll hold off on that for now!
