Depends... : Treatment of a flutter depends on the type of flutter (typical or atypical), whether it's the 1st episode, the age of the patient, the presence or absence of underlying heart disease, and patient's personal preferences (more medications vs. Procedural approach (ablation). Ablation is an excellent option for typical flutter. You should discuss this with your doctor or an electrophysiologist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Atrial fibrillation: Afib is a rapid irregular heart rhythm which can decrease heart efficiency as much as 20% in some patients. It can also be associated with clotting and clots travelling around the body to cause stroke or other problems. Some people have atrial fibrillation as their normal rhythm. We use drugs to control rate, rhythm and if not successful, ablation therapy by electrophysiologist. ...Read more
Yes: All catheter-based techniques are considered minimally invasive. Conventional techniques are up to 75% effective though multiple procedures are frequently required. There is a mini-thoracotomy procedure they can do with slightly improved efficacy over this but it involves making a lot of scar tissue around the left atrium; we usually reserve that for people needing other procedures in the chest. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is ablation is better than medical treatment of atrial fibrilation knowing that im controlled on multaq?
Both are effective: Catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation is reserved for the management of patients who have breakthrough atrial fibrillation spells despite treatment with arrhythmia meds like multaq. Atrial fibrillation is a disease of aging, and it is not unusual for patients who are controlled on medications for months or years to eventually require an ablation procedure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mobile echodensity visualized on the right atrial lead, adjacent to insertion into the right atrial appendage.Would this be a thrombus? Treatment?
Very likely; see doc: From the sounds of it, the "atrial lead" is from a pacemaker, indicating some prior problem with the heart rhythm. Mobile echodensity, which is the usual description of a thrombus, can arise in RAA from arrhythmias. Usual treatment is blood thinners & careful observation (in case stroke symptoms develop). Talk to your cardiologist to see if surgery is possible. Use HealthTap Prime for specifics.GL ...Read more
