What Is Catheter Ablation?

How is catheter ablation used to treat ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation?

What To Expect

The heat energy for ablation is transmitted through the catheters. It heats or erases the cells that are believed to be causing the arrhythmia. Once these cells are damaged, they are no longer capable of conduction and therefore should be unable to produce arrhythmias.
