Catheter ablation

In catheter ablation, the heart muscle fibres that are responsible for causing/maintaining the abnormal heart rhythm are specifically switched off/isolated. Catheter ablation is considered for the treatment of the following abnormal heart rhythms:

  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Atrial flutter
  • WPW syndrome [Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome]
  • Atrioventricular node reentry tachycardia
  • Other rare forms of supraventricular and ventricular tachycardia

The latest technologies are available for catheter ablation:

  • Electrophysiological measuring station (Prucka)
  • 3D navigation systems (Carto and NavX)
  • Remote-controlled magnetic navigation (Niobe/Stereotaxis)
