Propranolol, a first-generation nonselective β-adrenoceptor blocking agent, is commonly used to treat pediatric arrhythmias. Atenolol, relatively longacting, cardioselective β-adrenoceptor blocking agent, has been successfully used in adults with supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). There is only one report on the use of atenolol in children with SVT, and our report is on the first long-term prospective study to evaluate the use of atenolol in children. A group of 22 children <18 years of age… CONTINUE READING
