Electrophysiological Ablation

This treatment is offered for rapid and irregular heart rates that are responsible for symptoms such as dizziness, shortness of breath and palpitations. It can often be performed at the same time as an electrophysiological study.

The test involves mapping out the electrical activity of the heart using fine catheters inserted through the vessels near the top of the leg. A 3-dimensional image of the heart is then generated to help identify areas that give rise to the rapid heart rates, which can then be treated.
