Electrocardiogram (Definition)

Electrocardiogram (ecg, ekg) is a print-out of the electrical forces detected by electrodes on the chest wall, as electricity travels through the heart with each heart beat. The electrodes are placed in different positions, and each position "sees" the electrical activity of the heart from its own vantage point. Abnormalities in signal detected at chest surface ...Read more

After undergoing radiofrequency ablation, would? Wpw still be visible on your ecg?

After undergoing radiofrequency ablation, would? Wpw still be visible on your ecg?

WPW: After ablation in most cases your ekg should be normal. Ther are few cases when there is still evidence of abnormal conduction on the ekg, but those are rare. ...Read more

After doing radiofrequency ablation, would traces of WPW still be visible on your ecg?

After doing radiofrequency ablation, would traces of WPW still be visible on your ecg?

Wpw : If an ablation for WPW is successful the classic changes of WPW should not be present. There might be changes which mimic them however produced by the ablation damage but they shouldn't be early repolarization. ...Read more

After undergoing radiofrequency ablation, are traces of WPW still visible on your ecg?

Hope Not: If we got it, we got it. There should be no traces of the WPW (what we call delta waves) left behind. If the ablation was incomplete, the "pathway" can come back over time. ...Read more

Had radiofrequency ablation but still have to take beta blockers and have a couple of problems?

Had radiofrequency ablation but still have to take beta blockers and have a couple of problems?

Not perfect: Ablation is an excellent treatment for certain arythmias but often requires a repeat procedure. Sometimes there is more than one site that needs treatment as well. The procedure is not without some risk as well. Some pts have experienced perferations and high grade heart block requiring permanent pacemakers. ...Read more

What possible side effects could radiofrequency ablation have when done on lower back nerves without anesthesia?

What possible side effects could radiofrequency ablation have when done on lower back nerves without anesthesia?

Radiofrequency Ablat: More side effects from anethesia. The main side effect of radiofrequency ablation is some discomfort, including swelling & bruising at the treatment site that usually goes away after a few days. Leg numbness may develop due to the local anesthesia given during the procedure. It should only last a few hours. Mild back discomfort can occur as the local anesthetic wears off & typically lasts 2-3 days ...Read more

What is radiofrequency ablation?

What is radiofrequency ablation?

Thermal Lesion: Radiofrequency ablation is a procedure where thermal energy is used to ablate/cut a nerve in half. This will in essence stop transmission of signals through that nerve, mainly pain signals. This technology can be used for treating the spine, nerve pain disorders, also be used for heart problems and treat tumors. ...Read more

Is a radiofrequency ablation of a benign aldosterone producing adenoma < 2.0cm technically feasible?

Is a radiofrequency ablation of a benign aldosterone producing adenoma < 2.0cm technically feasible?

Not that I'm aware: Hi. I've never heard of RF ablation being used in the case of an adrenal adenoma. maybe it's being done experimentally somewhere, but it's not an accepted treatment. ...Read more

Ablation (Definition)

Cardiac ablation involves destruction of tissue aimed at elimination of sources of origin or propagation of arrhythmias. It may also be used to destroy part of the heart in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Typically it is done with a catheter inserted through a ...Read more
