What is Catheter Ablation?
Catheter ablation is a treatment procedure performed to treat some kinds of arrhythmia, in which there are problems related to the heartbeat rhythm.

How is Catheter Ablation Performed?

  • An ablation catheter, which is a thin, long and flexible tube, is inserted into a blood vessel in the arm, groin or neck.
  • The catheter is guided into the heart thought the blood vessel.
  • Radiofrequency (RF) energy is sent from a special machine through the ablation catheter into the heart.
  • Tissues of the heart where abnormal heartbeats occur are destroyed by the energy.

How to Prepare for Catheter Ablation?
  • A comprehensive electrophysiologic study (EPS) needs to be done before a catheter ablation procedure.
  • Various tests including chest X-ray, ECG and blood tests need to be conducted before the procedure.
  • Some medications need to be stopped a few days before the procedure.
  • Sedative medication will be given through an intravenous line.

Recovery : - The patient needs to stay in bed for 1 to 6 hours after the procedure.
