Treatments Related to Cardiac Ablation
While surgery may be a good option for patients with an irregular heart rhythm that doesn’t respond to other therapies, related treatments to cardiac ablation may be recommended before surgery is considered. Surgery, however, carries more risks than other less invasive treatment options.
These other treatment options include medications that regulate heart rhythm and insertion of a pacemaker or an automatic implanted cardiac defibrillator. For serious conditions, shock therapy (electrical cardioversion) or even open heart surgery may be required.
