Management of supraventricular tachyarrhythmias

Chest
E C Huycke, R J Sung

Abstract

Supraventricular tachyarrhythmias are common and treatment is based on the frequency and hemodynamic severity caused by these arrhythmias. Empiric therapy with currently available medications often satisfactorily controls symptomatic arrhythmias. Nonpharmocologic therapy with permanent antitachycardia pacemakers, percutaneous catheter ablation or surgery can be effective for selected patients with medically refractory supraventricular tachyarrhythmias after thorough electrophysiologic evaluation. In selected patients with life-threatening supraventricular tachyarrhythmias due to the WPW syndrome, surgical ablation is the therapy of choice.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
