Ablación cardíaca con catéter

En una ablación con catéter, se insertan los catéteres a través de los vasos sanguíneos hasta la parte interna del corazón y los electrodos que se encuentran en las puntas del catéter realizan un mapeo de la propagación de los impulsos eléctricos en el corazón. Los electrodos ubicados en las puntas del catéter transmiten energía para destruir un área pequeña de tejido cardíaco y crear un bloqueo eléctrico a lo largo de la vía que provoca la arritmia.
