Cardiac ablation treatment is a form of treatment that is used to treat atrial fibrillation or what is commonly known as the irregular heartbeat. If you're experiencing any of these tell-tale symptoms like fatigue, shortness of breath or rapid heartbeats, then you should consult a cardiologist straightaway. Atrial fibrillation if ignored and untreated can increase your chances of heart attacks, strokes even getting blood clots in your heart. In cardiac ablation what the cardiologist does is he places small wires (electrodes) inside the heart to gauge the heart's electrical activity. As soon as the electrode spots the tissue causing the irregular heartbeat, that particular tissue is scarred and destroyed. In some cases, ablation also prevents these irregular electrical signals from travelling through your heart and stops the arrhythmia. The ablation form of treatment can be done in either of the two ways: Radiofrequency catheter ablation that is using heat energy to destroy the root of the problem, or surgical ablation that is an open-heart surgery. This form of ablation is generally used to treat people undergoing bypass surgery or valve for heart disease. Now, which type of ablation is best suited for your is something that has to be decided by your cardiologist. Each type of ablation comes with a different cost structure. Time taken for the ablation procedure is typically 3-4 hours. This is inclusive of the time needed to prepare the patient for the procedure and also removing the catheters from the body once the procedure gets completed.
