CATHETER ABLATION (Radiofrequency Ablation – RFA)

What is Catheter Ablation?

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is an invasive procedure designed to cure abnormal heart rhythms. It is performed by an Electrophysiologist who will have discussed indications with you. Common reasons for undergoing this procedure are Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT), atrial flutter, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (WPW), atrial tachycardia and ventricular tachycardia. It often follows on from an Electrophysiological Study (EPS).
