The major indication for procedure was supraventricular tachycardia 376(59.97%).
The 2015 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association/Heart Rhythm Society guidelines recommended vagal maneuvers as first-line treatment of supraventricular tachycardia, but added that there was no gold standard method.
Tachyarrhythmia-induced cardiomyopathy can entirely or partially reversible after control of the responsible tachyarrhythmia and is typically caused by an incessant supraventricular tachycardia. Junctional ectopic tachycardia is often the form of incessant supraventricular tachycardia.
Flecainide, a Vaughan Williams class Ic antiarrhythmic, is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the prevention of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation/flutter, sustained ventricular tachycardia, paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia including atrioventricular nodal tachycardia, atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia, and other supraventricular tachycardia in patients without structural heart disease.
In a study investigating the frequency of arrhythmias, the frequency of arrhythmias increased, mostly ventricular ectopic activity in young healthy pregnancies, particularly among those with palpitation complaints.7 Reproductive hormones lay an important role in the onset and progression of arrhythmia such as supraventricular tachycardia and acquired long QT syndrome.8,9 The electrocardiogram is a common medical tool used for predicting arrhythmogenic risk in clinical practice.
Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) includes atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia--namely, atrioventricular re-entry with an accessory pathway--and atrial tachycardia.
Chalmers missed all of 2017 to have a second corrective surgery for Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT), a condition that rapidly increased his heartbeat during exercise.
Patients can have a highly variable clinical course related to the anatomic abnormalities of Ebstein anomaly and their hemodynamic effects or associated structural and conduction system disease, like Atrial septal defect (ASD) (90%), pulmonary hypertension, ventricular and supraventricular tachycardia, ventricular septal defect, tricuspid atresia (30%), pulmonic stenosis and Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW Syndrome) (up to 20% of patients) (5).
In addition, 4.0% of patients in the Zio monitored group were found to have potentially actionable arrhythmias other than AF including ventricular tachycardia, pause, AV block, and symptomatic supraventricular tachycardia. iRhythm added, "Monitoring with Zio led to significant change in clinical treatment of the actively monitored group including initiation of anticoagulation therapies (5.4%), antiarrhythmic medications (0.8%), and pacemaker placement (0.7%).
Atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT) is the most common of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) in adults6,7.
The electrocardiogram (ECG) could showed signs of myocardial ischemia supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) and bradycardia.[7,8]
