Electrophysiology (EP)

At Mercy Angiography we offer a complete electrophysiology (EP) programme.

Cardiac electrophysiology is the science of understanding, diagnosing and treating the electrical activities of the heart.
  1. An EP study enables the diagnosis of your heart rhythm problem.
  2. Once the cause and location of the rhythm problem are identified, this short circuit is either destroyed or blocked via catheter ablation. This involves sending energy through a specialised catheter to destroy a small amount of tissue at the problem site. This energy may be either hot (radiofrequency ablation) or cold (cryoablation).
  3. Atrial Fibrillation (AF), which is a particular type of abnormal heart rhythm, is treated via Pulmonary Vein Isolation (PVI).
The electrophysiologists who work with us and the treatments they offer are:
