Ablation therapy to treat other Heart Rhythm Disorders

Although Atrial Fibrillation is the most common type of Arrhythmia (or Heart Rhythm Disorder), there are many other types of Arrhythmias.

  • SVT or Supraventricular Tachycardia
  1. AVNRT or AV nodal reentrant tachycardia
  2. WPW (Wolf Parkinson White Syndrome)
  3. Atrial Tachycardia
  4. Typical Atrial Flutter
  5. Atypical Atrial Flutter
  • Ventricular Tachycardia
  1. Ischemic VT
  2. VT in non-ischemic cardiomyopathy
  3. Ideopathic VT

 

The point is that there are many different types of irregular heart beats. And, as a result, different Ablation techniques have been developed to treat each of these different arrhythmias. Your Electrophysiologist should be able to diagnose and treat these different types of arrythmias either with medicines or with ablation or a combination of the two.
