Cardiac ablation is a surgical procedure which can correct heart rhythm problems or arrhythmias. Ablation uses long, flexible tubes or catheters, inserted through a vein in one's groyne and threaded to the heart to correct structural problems in one's heart that cause an arrhythmia. Cardiac ablation works by scarring or destroying tissue in your heart that triggers an abnormal heart rhythm. In some cases, ablation prevents abnormal electrical signals from travelling through your heart and, thus, stops the arrhythmia. Cardiac ablation is sometimes done through open-heart surgery, but it's often done using catheters, making the procedure less invasive and shortening recovery times. Atrial fibrillation is an irregular and often rapid heart rate that can increase one's risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. During atrial fibrillation, the heart's two upper chambers (the atria) beat chaotically and irregularly — out of coordination with the two lower chambers (the ventricles) of the heart. Atrial fibrillation symptoms often include heart palpitations, shortness of breath and weakness. Atrial fibrillation can lead to blood clots forming in the heart that may circulate to other organs and lead to blocked blood flow (ischemia).Treatments for atrial fibrillation may include medications and other interventions to try to alter the heart's electrical system. It is a “non-penetrating” procedure that does not create a permanent fistula in the wall of the eye.
