Invasive Procedures and Tests Include:
Electrophysiology (EP) Study - This study is conducted in order to measure exactly how the electrical impulses flow through your heart during a heartbeat and to diagnose the source of the arrhythmia. Small catheters are placed inside your heart to record electrical impulses and to determine areas of abnormal electrical conduction.
Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation - This is a non-surgical procedure used to treat certain types of rapid heart irregularities or cardiac arrhythmias. In most cases the arrhythmia can be cured with this procedure, reducing or eliminating the need for medication.
