What is Atrial Fibrillation (or Afib) ablation?


Atrial fibrillation ablation is a percutaneous procedure (not open heart surgery) that is performed to try to correct the heart rhythm - or stop afib.


Afib causes the upper chamber of your heart to quiver fast. This is caused by abnormal electrical activity in the atria. The procedure targets the areas with abnormal activity.


Afib ablation is a procedure performed by cardiac electrophysiologists, cardiologists specialized in heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias). Patients typically spend one night in the hospital.


Reestablishing the normal rhythm of the heart can significantly improve quality of life.
