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.
- An EP study enables the diagnosis of your heart rhythm problem.
- 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).
- 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:
