I was diagnosed with LGL when I was 32 years old and have been on beta blockers ever since. Started with Inderal and then went to Corgard (nadalol) when it came available many years ago. I have recently had to have a new cardiologist due to them retiring. The new and younger cardiologist want me to go on blood thinners and say that they no longer diagnose the problem as LGL but call it Afib. I am now 79 years old and have had excellent experience with the beta blockers, and am afraid of blood thinners due to having had bronchiecstatis (sp) and bled from it a couple of times. I have was diagnosed with asthma 6 years ago and use Brovana and Alvesco daily. Do you not diagnose LGL anymore? Thanks. baz10

Lown-Ganong-Levine syndrome is an extremely rare conduction disorder characterized by a short PR interval (less than or equal to 120 ms) with normal QRS complex on electrocardiogram associated with the occurrence of episodes of atrial tachyarrythmias (e.g. atrial fibrillation, atrial tachycardia). Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is the best known LGL syndrome.
