Catheter Ablation - What it is

​Catheter ablation (also known as radiofrequency catheter ablation) is a non-surgical technique where a thin electrode catheter (a specially insulated electrical wire) is used to localise the abnormal site in the heart causing the arrhythmia (electrical disorder of the heart). Radiofrequency energy is then delivered via the catheter to ablate (or destroy) it. It is an extension of the electrophysiological study (EPS).
