A Cardiologist will undertake the Cardiac ablation procedure which is used to correct erratic heart beat/heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias). Cardiac ablation usually uses long, flexible tubes (catheters) inserted through a vein or artery in your groin and threaded to your heart and works by scarring or destroying tissue in your heart that triggers or sustains the abnormal heart rhythm. In some cases, cardiac ablation prevents abnormal electrical signals from entering your heart and, thus, stops the arrhythmia. Cardiac ablation can be carried out through open-heart surgery, but it’s often done using catheters, making the procedure less invasive and shortening recovery times.
