Take a look at our video production for the new Ablation medical project.
Ablation, also known as catheter ablation, is a procedure that can control or correct heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias). That is, certain types of abnormal heart rhythms.
So ablation works by scarring or destroying tissue in your heart that triggers or causes an abnormal rhythm of the heart. In some cases, cardiac ablation prevents abnormal electrical signals from entering your heart and, thus, stops the arrhythmia.
While ablation they usually use long, flexible tubes called catheters. Doctors insert them through a vein or artery in your groin and thread to your heart to deliver energy in the form of heat or extreme cold. This is to modify the tissues in your heart that are the reason for an arrhythmia.
Sometimes it’s done through open-heart surgery, but it’s often done using catheters, making the procedure less invasive and shortening recovery times.
It’s worth mentioning, that ablation does involve a very small amount of risk. Your doctor will explain any risks before you give your consent to have the procedure. He will only recommend you to have this procedure if they think the benefits outweigh the risks.
All this info seems very highly professional but we hope it will help some people who want to know more about ablation.
