Several heart rhythm disorders are amenable to treatment with catheter ablation.
This is a local anaesthetic procedure where catheters are passed to the heart and radiofrequency energy is used to re-order the electrical signals of the heart and prevent future attacks of palpitations.
Some ablation treatments are highly successful, with over 95% lifetime cure rates for abnormal heart rhythms.
Complex rhythms require electronic mapping of the internal chambers of the heart.
Once mapped, 3-dimensional images guide us through the selective modification of the electrical activity of your heart, abolishing the abnormal heart rhythms.
