Electrophysiology is the study of the electrical properties of biological cells and tissues. It involves measurements of voltage and change of electric currents on a wide variety of scales from a single ion channel up through to whole organs like the heart. This test can help determine what is causing a patient’s irregular heartbeat and possible sources of treatment. Your doctor can safely reproduce your heart’s abnormal rhythm to see which medication will be the most effective.
Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation is a procedure used to selectively destroy areas of the heart that are causing a heart rhythm problem. A thin, wire called a catheter is inserted into a vein or typically in the groin and/or neck. They are threaded up through the vein and into the heart. This procedure has been done successfully on patients ranging from 3 months of age all the way up to 97 years of age. Most procedures take 3-6 hours based on your given condition.
An Electrophysiology Study & Radiofrequency Ablation is a special type of heart catheterization which is done to study the heart’s electrical system. This can determine the heart’s rhythm and beat to help determine the best treatment for that patient. It can also help discover what originally caused the heart arrhythmia. The electro-frequency part of the procedure disrupts the abnormal heart rhythm and/or abnormality by putting a small scar on the heart tissue by scratching the tissue’s surface. This stops the heart arrhythmia from traveling to the heart in the first place.
An Electrophysical Procedure detects any heart arrhythmias or abnormalities to determine where they are coming from. This helps determine what treatment works best for this person’s particular heart condition. Cardiology-Electrophysiology is the science of elucidating, diagnosing, and treating electrical activity of the heart. This includes both diagnostic and treatment measures for the person who has the heart condition.
