Ablation Therapy for Arrhythmias Index
This procedure is used to treat abnormal heart rhythms. Depending on the type of arrhythmia and the presence of other heart disease, a nonsurgical ablation or a surgical ablation, may be performed. During a catheter ablation, catheters are advanced to the heart via blood vessels in the groin, neck, and arm. The conduction system of the heart is mapped and any areas responsible for the arrhythmia are destroyed.
