Through the skilful use of heat energy (RF Ablation), Ventricular Tachycardia ablation creates precise micro-scars within your heart, effectively blocking faulty signals responsible for rapid and irregular heartbeats. This remarkable treatment targets the condition known as Ventricular Tachycardia, which occurs when abnormal electrical signals disrupt the natural rhythm of the heart's lower chambers, the ventricles.
The primary objective of Ventricular Tachycardia ablation is to achieve a healthy and regular heart rhythm, ensuring optimum cardiac function. One highly effective technique in this realm is radiofrequency catheter ablation, which has emerged as a prominent solution for managing ventricular arrhythmias. This procedure has proven to be an exceptional choice for patients who have not experienced satisfactory results with medications, struggle with medication tolerability, or simply prefer a non-pharmacological approach.
At our esteemed institution, Dr Karthigesan leads the way in VT ablation procedures. With extensive expertise and a commitment to patient care, Dr Karthigesan offers a superior level of skill and precision, delivering outstanding outcomes that enhance the quality of life for each patient.
Cardiac ablation has emerged as a powerful tool in the treatment of various arrhythmias and select structural heart conditions. In addition to its effectiveness in ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablation, this innovative technique can successfully address a spectrum of supraventricular arrhythmias, expanding its therapeutic reach to provide comprehensive care. The types of arrhythmias that can be effectively treated with cardiac ablation include:
If you are preparing for Ventricular Tachycardia (VT) Ablation, you need to consult with Dr Karthigesan first. He will conduct a thorough review of your medical history. As part of the preparation process, you may have to comply with the following pre-procedural steps:
Ventricular Tachycardia (VT) Ablation is a complex procedure meticulously executed with the objective of eradicating the origin of the VT. The process is systematically performed as follows:
Enhanced precision is achieved during the procedure using innovative 3D mapping technology such as the CARTO or ENSITE system. Dr Karthigesan is one of the pioneers in using 3D mapping technology in India. At our clinic, we are equipped with the facility to use one of the latest technology in the world today- CARTO 3 Version 7. It is a highly precise technology that can easily identify the location of arrhythmia with one millimeter accuracy and enhance the success rate of ablation
Upon successful identification and localisation of the VT circuits and abnormal tissue, the radiofrequency ablation is applied to the targeted area. However, the duration of a scar-related VT ablation procedure may vary depending on numerous factors, such as the seriousness of structural heart disease and the number of VT circuits.
3D mapping technology significantly enhances the success rate of RF catheter ablation procedures. It provides a more accurate guide for the process, improving outcomes while also reducing the patient's exposure to radiation. The recent integration of contact force sensing catheters into 3D mapping technology has further amplified the success rate of RF ablation.
