Electrophysiology and Ablation (EP)

Many heart rhythm problems are caused by abnormal electrical tissue in the heart producing ‘short circuits’ of the normal heart beat.  These can cause fast heartbeats and palpitations.  Electrophysiology & Ablation procedures involve passing fine wires via groin arteries up into the heart to map the normal and abnormal electrical circuits of the heart.  Once identified a special tube is then used to heat up and produce a controlled burn of the abnormal tissue to permanently stop it from causing further symptoms.  In many cases, this results in a complete cure of the problem.
