Heart ablation or cardiac ablation is a procedure done to treat irregular heartbeats or arrhythmias. It is performed by an interventional cardiologist, a doctor who specialises in doing procedures for heart problems and it involves threading long wires called catheters through a blood vessel into your heart. The irregular heartbeat is treated by delivering an electrical pulse using electrodes to specific areas of your heart.
A normal heart beats at a steady rate, but sometimes, your heart may beat too quickly, too slowly, or unevenly. These heart rhythm problems are called arrhythmias and one of the treatments for this heart problem is cardiac ablation. Other treatment modalities are medications and changes in lifestyle. Heart ablation is prescribed when the other treatments fail. Arrhythmias mostly happen in older people and in people who suffer from other heart problems like cardiomyopathy.
Here are answers to most frequently asked questions related to ablation
Who will benefit from heart ablation?
The beneficiaries include people who
- Suffer from arrhythmias that don’t respond to medicines
- Suffer from side effects from arrhythmia medicines
- Suffer from a specific kind of arrhythmia that respond very well to cardiac ablation
- Are at a high risk for cardiac arrest or other complications which can be fatal
Cardiac ablation is very helpful for patients who have certain kinds of arrhythmias like atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia, which cause fast heartbeats.
How to prepare for cardiac ablation?
You will have to undergo extensive tests to record your heart’s electrical activity and rhythm. Your doctor will ask and record whether you have any other disease like high BP and diabetes.
If you are a woman and pregnant, you must not get this procedure done as it involves radiation. You will not be allowed to eat or drink anything after midnight, the night before the procedure.
How is heart ablation done?
Heart ablations are done in a special room known as an electrophysiology laboratory. It usually takes three to six hours and is usually done under general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia with sedation.
The catheters are threaded either from your neck, groyne or arm into your heart. Your cardiologist also injects a special contrast dye to help him see areas of abnormal muscle in your heart. He then uses a catheter with an electrode at the tip to give radiofrequency energy to the weak heart muscle to correct your irregular heartbeat.
You may have to stay overnight after the procedure.
- Blood clots
- Damage to heart valves or arteries
- The build-up of fluid around your heart
- Heart attack
Inflammation of sac surrounding your heart or pericarditis You will have to be monitored regularly after ablation to check for problems in your heart beats.

Hypertension, also called as high blood pressure is a common but dangerous condition. It is also often referred to as a modern lifestyle disease, probably because the changing lifestyle habits such as poor diet, lack of physical activity are the main reasons for the high incidences of hypertension. And these habits, make way for an array of complications including diabetes, kidney failure, stroke, heart attack etc.
However, it is always possible to stay healthier and control your blood pressure by simply following a healthy lifestyle. Adopt healthy eating habits, which include:
Regularly eat walnuts: Heart disease is directly related to physical reaction towards stress. Regular eating of walnuts will help in controlling this response, hence, well-managing your blood pressure. It is also a great source of antioxidants and fibre, which add to the benefits of eating it.
Sufficient mineral intake: Eating a diet rich in calcium, magnesium, and potassium is extremely beneficial for the heart. Sweet potatoes, bananas, dry fruits, dairy products, etc., have shown to reduce blood pressure.
Limit salt intake: The processed variety of salt that almost everyone consumes these days is devoid of all minerals and this is one of the major contributors for high blood pressure. Even studies have shown that reducing salt intake greatly helps in controlling blood pressure. Also, processed food items, everything from bread to cookies to cheese has salt, so avoid these eatables as much as possible.
Include a colourful meal in you diet: Fill your plate with peppers, berries, dry fruits, and organic fruits and vegetables. Pomegranate juice is believed to control angiotensin, converting enzyme, which is responsible for controlling hypertension. They are also rich in antioxidants and help control blood pressure by reducing inflammation.
Keep a tab on your cholesterol level: There is good and bad cholesterol and the bad one should be avoided. Read the labels properly, and ensure you are eating less of the bad cholesterol. Good cholesterol is required for the production of hormones and proper body functioning.
Don’t eat medicines unnecessarily: It may seem pretty easy to just pop an ibuprofen when there is a headache or a backache, it is advisable to watch out. Don’t take medicines if not needed and best is to avoid them, as they can induce hypertension and heart disease.
Apart from adopting these healthy changes, you can also practice relaxation techniques, consume green tea, have dark chocolate, red wine and quit smoking. All these together will definitely help to keep your blood pressure under check.
