WHAT IS HEART ABLATION?

By permanently scarring abnormal heart tissue, your doctor redirects your heart’s electrical signals so your heart beats normally again.

During catheter ablation, a doctor threads several catheters—special long, flexible tubes with wires—into your heart to study your arrhythmia and to deliver radio frequency energy to scar the areas of your heart responsible for the abnormal rhythm.
