An electrophysiology procedure is performed to reveal the way electrical signals move through the heart. The heartbeat is declared to be regular if these signals show normal movement. However, if these signals show abnormal movement, the heartbeat is declared to be irregular and this is known as an arrhythmia. Radiofrequency ablation (RA) is the test performed for treating some types of arrhythmias, which takes around 3-4 hours. This procedure involves the insertion of a catheter into the heart via a vein. The doctor employs the use of special x-rays to observe the catheter as it moves through the body. The catheter consists of small sensors that measure the way electrical signals move through the heart. With the help of these measurements, the cardiologist evaluates irregular heartbeats. During an ERA, a catheter is placed right next to the heart cells, which causes the creation of abnormal electrical signals. RF energy is transmitted from the tip of the catheter to exterminate the abnormal cells in the area, which, in turn, enables the restoration of the normal heart rhythm.

Electrophysiological Radio Ablation ERA including 3D Ablation in India is present at Manipal Hospitals, book an appointment today.
Catheter ablation is recommended by the doctors depending on the diagnosis of the test. In some cases, it is conducted along with the test. Medication, the implantation of cardioverter defibrillators, pacemakers, or catheter ablation procedures are the most commonly prescribed treatment plans for fast heart rhythm.
There are almost no risks associated with an ERA. However, in some cases, bleeding may occur from the puncture site or a blood clot may form at this site. Moreover, the patient may have a fast heart rhythm, which can require the use of a defibrillator or electric shocks to set it to normal. In some rare instances, the ablation may not work out and the procedure may have to be repeated. Manipal is the Cardiology Hospital in India taking care of all the risks involved in the procedure.
