Suggest treatment for wharf syndrome(wolff-parkinson-white syndrome)

My daughter suffered an aortic aneurysm descending in 2009 at the age of 17. This was found out 1day after giving birth. She had an op a day later. Whilst checking her son at hospital for what they believed to be neuro fibromatosis, they also checked her and noticed her scars. They will now be checking her for wharf syndrome? She thinks that s what it s called. As doctors reckon they should have posed the question as to why she had suffered at such a young age. Could you please advise

Hi welcome to HCM.
Wolff parkinson white syndrome consists of aberrant conduction pathway for impulse travel.This can be diagnosed accurately by electrophysiological study.Drugs like Adenosine can help to control of asynchronous discharges.Radiofrequency ablation can offer permanent cure by causing destruction of the aberrant pathway.Consult your cardiologist for further expert management.Thank you.
