I was diagnosed with RVOT-VT earlier in the week. I was originally diagnosed with WPW as I had 230bpm recorded on 24hr halter monitor and evidence of Delta wave on resting ecg, but during EP study last week, they triggered my palpitations I've been getting which turned out to be sustained VT (approx 4mins worth and 260bpm recorded). They've ruled out ARVD following my MRI results and I'm back on the waiting list for an urgent ablation.
I understand this is a benign condition, but I haven't fully wrapped my head around it. What causes it? What about the condition makes it safe? Is it a safe rhythm? I tend to get palpitations almost all day (have done for years) and then sustained VT during exercise. If I chose to exercise, would I do myself any damage? I am struggling to find any info online about this particular condition, and have more questions than answers.
Hope you can help!
