Catheter ablation information and locations in Mexico

Catheter ablation is a procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to correct heart rhythm conditions (arrhythmias). Doctors used a catheter inserted on a vein to create small scars inside the heart.
This procedure can be done under general anesthesia. Specialists create small incisions on the groin, neck, or arm to insert 3 or 4 catheters into the arteries to reach the heart. The catheters have electrodes on their tips that produce mild radiofrequency heat energy, this will destroy the muscle cells responsible for the abnormal electrical signals.
