What is it

Catheter ablation is the technique during which catheters (small flexible tube) with electrodes (able to record and display the electrical activity of the heart on a monitor) are threaded up to the heart, in order to identify the area causing the tachycardia (fast heart beats). An ablation (a permanent damage) of the abnormally active heart cells is achieved with the delivery of heat or cold energy. Catheter ablation is performed in the chambers collecting (the atria) and pumping (the ventricles) blood with risk and success rates that vary depending from the specifi c arrhythmia. Nowadays, so called threedimensional mapping system are routinely used in order to improve effi cacy and safety, allowing precise movements in the heart without the need to use fl uoroscopy, therefore dramatically reducing X-ray exposure (Fig. 6&7). Patients are usually discharged 2 days after the operation.

Why a patient needs a catheter ablation

Tachycardia originates from atria or ventricles. Palpitations, anxiety, shortness of breath, and an inability to exercise are usual symptoms. Syncope can occur, and tachycardias originating from the ventricle (ventricular tachycardia or fi brillation) can lead to cardiac arrest. In addition, a persistent high heartbeat can damage the heart resulting in a specifi c form of heart failure (tachycardiomyopathy). Treatment of the arrhythmia leads to symptom resolution or quick normalization of the heart function.

What we perform

Defi brillators are implanted in a hospital based setting. We off er all the diff erent current technologies in ICDs Implant including, single, double, biventricular and subcutaneous devices. Devices compatible with magnetic resonance imaging can be implanted if necessary.
