Radiofrequency ablation of arrhythmias
RFA is a new method of treatment in arrhythmology. It allows to improve the prognosis or permanently get rid of certain types of tachyarrhythmias.
What is Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) ?
RFA is a medical procedure used to treat certain types of arrhythmias, with the help of which in the heart a problematic area is "cauterized ", what helps to alleviate or eliminate the symptoms of arrhythmia.
During RFA, several special catheters (thin, flexible wires) are placed in the blood vessels, usually in the upper third of the thigh through small punctures. The wires are directed through the large vessels to the heart. With the help of special equipment, a problematic area of the cardiac tissue is searched for, which causes arrhythmias. Then this area is "cauterized" with the help of radio-frequency energy. After the procedure, the catheters are removed.
High-tech navigation equipment allows you to see your heart in 3D, what allows you to identify the arrhythmia area more accurately and make the procedure even safer.
The procedure is less traumatic one, and with good results the patient can go home a few days after the operation, having selected an appropriate drug therapy.
In our Center, diagnosis and treatment of common types of tachyarrhythmia are carried out. Atrial flutter, tachycardia with WPW syndrome, AV-node reciprocal tachycardia, and others. Assistance is provided to Belarusian citizens and foreign citizens.
