Cardiac ablation

Specialty of Cardiology

Once the electrophysiological study, and / or during the electrophysiological study, has been carried out, after having located with millimetric precision the origin of the abnormal electrical activation responsible for the tachyarrhythmia or tachycardia, to the therapeutic procedure that follows the same and consists of elimination of the Abnormal electrical tissue responsible for the arrhythmia, is called ablation, and can be performed by Radiofrequency, producing the least heat injury by Heat between 45 ° C and 60 ° C, enough to destroy the abnormal electrical tissue responsible or cold, producing In this case a freezing thermal injury, which is used in the electrical isolation of the pulmonary veins of the left atrium or even in some supraventricular tachycardias in children, with abnormal electric circuit locations near the normal cardiac conduction system, with less possibility To produce a blockage.
