Good Day to All,
I am a Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome (WPW) patient and would like to know what is the relation between this condition and the QT syndrome. I've had only three arrythmia episodes in my life (I'm 38), all of them inconsequential. One lasted for 5 minutes, the other about 2 and the last one about 1.
I checked the list of drugs to avoid and there are some commonalities among those and the ones mentioned to me as the ones I should avoid.
Dr. Jorgen Kanters

There is no known relationship between inherited LQTS and WPW. However since the delta wave prolong the QRS complex, which is a part of the QT interval, the QT interval can be slightly prolonged. Some cases of WPW are associated with cardiomyopathy, and all heart diseases may prolong the QT interval moderately.

Thanks a lot.
