Heart surgery and procedures
Information on atrial fibrillation ablation, atrial flutter ablation, atrioventricular node ablation, cardiac resynchronization therapy, cardioversion, electrophysiology and implantable cardiac electrical devices.
Atrial fibrillation ablation
Ablation is a medical procedure used to correct certain heart rhythm problems such as atrial fibrillation.
Atrial flutter ablation
Ablation is a medical procedure used to correct certain heart rhythm conditions such as atrial flutter.
Atrioventricular node ablation
Atrioventricular node ablation is a medical procedure used to correct certain heart rhythm problems such as atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter.
Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT)
A cardiac resynchronization therapy device is a medical device used to resynchronize the contractions of the heart's ventricles by sending tiny electrical impulses to the heart muscle.
Cardioversion is a procedure that uses an electrical current to stop an irregular heart rhythm and change the heart rhythm to a regular rate.
Electrophysiology is a specialized area of medicine that deals with the heart's electrical system and timing.
Preparing for an implantable device
Our implantable cardiac electrical devices (ICED) program provides a variety of cardiac device related procedures.
Implantable cardiac monitoring or loop recorders
An implantable loop recorder is a type of heart-monitoring device that records your heart rhythm continuously for up to three years.
Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD)
An implantable cardioverter defibrillator is a device used to regulate irregular heart rhythms by sending electrical pulses or shocks to the heart to help control life-threatening arrhythmias.
Pacemaker generator change
A pacemaker generator change or battery replacement is necessary when the pacing device is at the end of its service life.
A pacemaker is a small battery-powered medical device that sends electrical impulses to control or help a person’s heart to beat at a normal rate.
