Alec's Heart Surgery
Alec will undergo a surgery that will try to repair the extra electrical pathway in the heart on February 21, 2017. The long-term treatment for WPW syndrome is very often catheter ablation. This procedure involves inserting a tube (catheter) into a vein through a small cut near the groin up to the heart area. When the tip reaches the heart, the small area that is causing the fast heart rate is destroyed using a special type of energy called radiofrequency or by freezing it (cryoablation).
Wolff-Parkinsin-White Syndrome is very rare but in any case it is an extra electrical pathway in the heart that causes a rapid heartbeat.
The extra electrical pathway in Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome appears between the heart's upper and lower chambers and is present at birth.
Symptoms most often appear between the ages of 11 and 50 and include a rapid pounding heartbeat, dizziness, and lightheadedness.
