Answer

Medications are usually administered in the acute setting or to patients who are not candidates for radiofrequency ablation (RFA). Agents can be used to control the ventricular rate, terminate acute episodes, prevent or decrease the frequency or duration of recurrent episodes, and prevent complications.
