Laser ablation is much easier (both during the procedure and recovery) than surgical procedures s. ...Read more

With a catheter: An electrical study of the heart is first performed using catheters passed from the veins in the legs, arms or neck. This study helps document the wpw. A special catheter is then used to "map" the location of the extra electrical connection that causes the wpw. That same catheter can be used to destroy the extra connection, either by burning or freezing the abnormal connection. ...Read more

Should my girlfriend have a hysterectomy or leep loop electrosurgical excision procedure ?

The leep can be both diagnostic and treat most conditions involving her cervix, but she should consult her doctor as to why either procedure should be done. ...Read more

What is the indication for surgical ablation (av node ablation) for atrial fibrillation?

What is the indication for surgical ablation (av node ablation) for atrial fibrillation?

Definitive Control: We don't generally do this with surgery, but rather with a "catheter" based procedure (wire we thread into the heart that cauterizes the av node). This procedure provides complete control of the heart rate in the lower chamber and excellent symptom control, but makes people dependent on the pacemaker that *must* be implanted with this procedure. ...Read more
