My personal experience is over 5 years old. But for most of us who had the procedure around then reported an echo or stress echo prior to the procedure.

Wolff-Parkinson-White symptoms feel like any other type of SVT. The onset of rapid heartbeat is abrupt amd sudden. You can be sitting peacefully one moment watching TV, or enjoying a meal, and the next second your heart will jump in a instant to possibly 4 times it's normal rate. Once it starts racing, many like myself feel a heavy pressure on their ...

Plenty of us have or have had sustained SVT at rates of 220 to 260. As a 6 year old child, I had a rate of 312 bpm that was measured in a hospital. Mine would run on for hours...8f I allowed it to. Sometimes, it can be difficult to determine VT vs. SVT with an aberrancy. Note, "With an aberrancy". Do you have classic SVT, or are there some thing...

There a number of us on this site who have undergone the electrophysiology procedure with ablation specifically for SVT. We are here to hopefully answer any questions you may have regarding it.

Over the 54 years that I had SVT, it was caught only 3 times, when I was first diagnosed as a child of 6, then at 21 during a cardiac catheterization. I had the kind that would run nn and on for hours if I let it. But I would intervene and slow it as quickly as I could. My cardiologist pleaded with me to get to the ER when one occurred so they could captur...

What you're experiencing is very normal. It happens to just about everyone following an ablation. You may need up to a year before your heart settles down. Expect short runs of SVT, and skips. Extended runs of SVT should be noted and told to your physician.

Unless there is some good reason to use this guy, you should see someone different. Electrophysiology procedures are MONEY. They get paid if the procedure is successful or not.

Why? Because after 54 years of SVT which towards the later years occurred 3 to 5 times per month, my cardiologist cautioned me about letting it go on into my later years. Mom was nearing 60 at the time. The electrophysiologist I chose (one of 3 I saw) uses general sedation for the majority of his procedures, so consequently the experience was quite comforta...
