Do U mean ablation?: An ablation procedure for atrial tachycardia involves placing catheters into the heart and "mapping" the heart to determine the location of the arrhythmia. Radiofrequency energy is then used to cauterize the tissue and destroy the area causing the arrhythmia. You can speak to a cardiac electrophysiologist to learn more.
