Mayo Clinic doctors and surgeons trained in heart rhythm disorders conduct research to improve care for people living with arrhythmias.

Areas of investigation include:

  • Leading a multicenter, multinational trial to compare drug therapy with cardiac ablation for people with arrhythmia
  • Designing and testing innovative catheters to deliver ablation, including improved cryoablation balloons
  • Studying the genetics of heart arrhythmias
  • Improving technology and techniques used to diagnose arrhythmias

This emphasis on research and innovation increases the treatment choices available to Mayo Clinic patients. You may also have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials. Learn more about heart rhythm disease research and cardiovascular research at Mayo Clinic.
