Ablation of Cardiac Arrhythmias

Ablation of Cardiac Arrhythmias

Cardiac arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythm that can cause rapid heartbeats. This can sometimes lead to dizziness, ligtheadednedness or blacking out (syncope).

Ablation of Cardiac Arrhythmias

Most arrhythmias can be treated with medications. However, medications may be ineffective. Moreover, some patients may be reluctant to commit to lifelong use of medications due to the cost and side effects. The good news is that ablation can be used to treat majority of these arrhythmias, thus, obviating the need for medical treatments. The arrhythmias normally treated with ablation are the supraventricular tachycardias (SVT). Examples are:

  • Atrial Flutter
  • AV Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia
  • AV Reentrant Tachycardia
  • Atrial Tachycardia
  • Wolff Parkinson White Syndrome (WPW)
