Ablation Systems

This channel provides technology news on new ablation system advances in cardiac electrophysiology (EP) used to treat dysfunctional heart tissue that cause arrhythmias. Each cell in the myocardium generates its own electrical impulses to cause the heart to beat, but if some cells generate signals that are not in synch with other parts of the heart, it causes an arrhythmia, an abnormal heart beat. Ablation systems use heat (usually generated  by radio frequency, RF, energy or a laser) or extreme cold to cause small burns. These lesions create scar tissue that block electrical signals causing the arrhythmia. These procedures are guided by EP electro mapping systems
