Abstract

AIM: Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) has been shown to be associated with poor outcome in psychological status and quality of life. This study aimed to assess the quality-of-life and anxiety in patients with PSVT and to investigate the influence of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) treatment on these parameters.
