Cardiac ablation is a procedure to scar or destroy tissue in your heart that’s allowing incorrect electrical signals to cause an abnormal heart rhythm. Diagnostic catheters are threaded through blood vessels to your heart where they are used to map your heart’s electrical signals.
The ablation procedure is performed in a hospital electrophysiology lab.
This procedure is used to treat arrhythmias of the heart, such as atrial fibrillation, Atrial Flutter, Supraventricular Tachycardia, Premature Ventricular Complexes, and Ventricular Tachycardia.
How long are you in the hospital after cardiac ablation?
You may have to stay in the hospital overnight after your ablation so your doctor and nurses can keep an eye on you while you recover. You may need to rest in bed about 6 to 8 hours after your ablation. Some people leave the hospital the same day. Most people leave the hospital the next morning.
