Care and Treatment of Arrhythmia


The Stanford Cardiac Arrhythmia Service employs the latest non-surgical and surgical methods for treating arrhythmias. Once we've diagnosed your condition and determined its cause, we can develop a treatment plan that will prove to be the most effective at either controlling or correcting your arrhythmia.

Our treatment methods can include:


A minimally-invasive non-surgical procedure used to treat many types of conditions.

Anti-arrhythmic agents

A group of drugs used to suppress cardiac arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation.

Atrial fibrillation surgery (MAZE)

A surgical procedure in which incisions on the left and right atria are made to form scar tissue which interrupts and prevents erratic electrical signals from recurring, restoring normal heart rhythm.

Biventricular pacing implantable defibrillator

A device used to stimulate both the left and the right ventricles at the same time to create a more coordinated and effective heart beat.

Cardiac resynchronization therapy

A surgical implant procedure that coordinates or "resynchronizes" the heart so both chambers beat at the same time.

Catheter ablation

A procedure in which heat energy is transmitted through catheters to eliminate electrical cells that are believed to be causing heart arrhythmia.

Pacemaker or ICD lead extraction

A surgical procedure in which pacemaker or ICD device leads which have been inserted under the collar bone and advanced into the heart are removed.

Permanent pacemaker

An implanted device that uses electrical impulses, delivered by electrodes contracting the heart muscles, to regulate the beating of the heart.

Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD)

A surgically implanted medical device that detects irregular heart rhythms and works to set the heart back into a normal rhythm.

Ventricular tachycardia surgery

Surgical procedure called an endocardiectomy to remove tissue causing arrhythmia; done in conjunction with surgical ventricular restoration.
