Handstands: a treatment for supraventricular tachycardia?
Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is the most common symptomatic tachyarrhythmia in childhood. Treatment involves vagal manoeuvres, pharmacological agents or electrical cardioversion. We report a child with recurrent SVT secondary to Wolff–Parkinson–White syndrome who is consistently able to revert her SVT by doing a handstand. This case highlights a simple non-invasive technique for the treatment of SVT.
