Catheter Ablation


Catheter ablation is a minimally invasive medical procedure used to treat certain types of abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias) by selectively destroying the heart tissue responsible for the irregular rhythm. This is achieved by inserting a catheter with an electrode at its tip into the heart through a blood vessel, and then applying radiofrequency energy or cryoenergy to eliminate the problematic tissue.
