Cardiac ablation treatment is a procedure that is used to scan small areas in your heart that may be involved in your heart rhythm problems. This can prevent the abnormal electrical signals or rhythms from moving through the heart. During the procedure, small wires called electrodes are placed inside your heart to measure your heart's electrical activity. When the source of the problem is found, the tissue causing the problem is destroyed. There are two methods for performing cardiac ablation that is by Radiofrequency ablation uses heat energy to eliminate the problem area and the second method is Cryoablation which uses very cold temperatures. The type of procedure you have will depend on what kind of abnormal heart rhythm you have. Cardiac ablation procedures are done in a hospital laboratory by trained staff. This includes cardiologists (heart doctors), technicians, and nurses. The setting is safe and controlled so your risk is as low as possible. Atrial fibrillation or flutter is a common type of abnormal heartbeat. The heart rhythm is fast and most often irregular. Electrical signals direct your heart to pump the right amount of blood for your body's needs. The signals begin in an area called the sinoatrial node. Destroying this tissue helps restore your heart's regular rhythm. The procedure is also called radiofrequency catheter ablation. Catheter ablation is used to treat abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias) when medicines are not tolerated or effective. Catheter ablation destroys the tissue. Surgical ablation involves cutting into your chest. Sometimes it's called the maze procedure. Some people with AFib can have keyhole surgery or surgery that uses a robot.
