A minimally invasive procedure called pulmonary vein ablation uses targeted energy to correct atrial fibrillation, which is a very fast, chaotic irregular heart rhythm. Here’s how the procedure works.
Patients with a heart arrhythmia, or abnormal heart rhythm, can often benefit from a minimally invasive treatment called an ablation—which is a high-tech way to correct an issue with your heart’s electrical system.
Don't lose hope if you have recurrent atrial fibrillation, weeks, months, or even years after you have had a pulmonary vein ablation. A repeat procedure can help you regain control over your heartbeat.
