?What is a RF ablation?


Radiofrequency ablation is the treatment of various
diseases of tachycardia (paroxysmal
supraventricular tachycardia, Wolff-Parkinson-White
syndrome, atrial tachycardia, atrial flutter,
paroxysmal atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia,
frequent ventricular premature beats, etc) a
common approach. Its operation is simple, the
operation of small, reliable results, has been the
majority of doctors and patients.

So what is radiofrequency ablation?            Henan province

Radiofrequency ablation in x-ray machine
monitoring aspiration of femoral vein, left subclavian
vein or other vascular, cardiac catheter into the first
electrophysiology checks to determine the cause of
abnormal structure and specific locations. And then
will be sent to the catheter site, and in this part of
the local release of RF currents, so that the local
temperature rise, through thermal effects make
regional myocardial cell degeneration, necrosis,
dehydration (injury usually 7-diameter 8mm, depth
3-5mm), thus altering disease myocardial cell of
self-regulation and conductive to achieve radical

The procedure generally need only a small local
anesthesia, pain, myocardial tissue damage range
is small, the success rate is high, and surgical
complications. Compared with drug treatment,
catheter ablation is not a temporary precautionary
or termination of attack, but rather radical no longer
need to use antiarrhythmic drugs, avoid taking
antiarrhythmic drug side-effects and trouble;
compared with the surgical ablation of small, does
not need chest, and generally does not require
general anesthesia, pain, and how simple it is a
safe and effective, streamlined treatment methods.
Radiofrequency ablation in 1987 at the world's first
application to clinical, its theory and related
technology is developing rapidly. Current
radiofrequency ablation has been successful in
many qualified local hospital. The success rate of
more than 95 per cent.

Those patients in need of radiofrequency ablation
for the treatment?

Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome with paroxysmal
atrial fibrillation ventricular, atrioventricular reentrant
tachycardia (avnrt), atrioventricular reentrant
tachycardia (accessory pathways involved and
tachycardia) and idiopathic ventricular tachycardia,
bundle branch reentrant tachycardia, arrhythmia
ablation patients is the most common treatment for
the object.

With the mapping technology continues to develop,
velocity, atrial flutter, paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation
Ablation rate is also increasing, more and more
becoming the main treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.
