Ablation

Here at the Elliot Health System, Dr. Paul LeLorier from Boston Medical center is offering his services for patients in the Manchester area who have heart arrhythmias. Over the last decade, ablation techniques have revolutionized the treatment of many heart arrhythmias and it is now considered the primary therapy for
heart arrhythmias.

Ablation is a nonsurgical procedure that is done to cure many SVT’s or A flutters using radio frequency waves that heat the tip of a cather. Energy is delivered though a cather, which reaches a certain temperature. This will results in searing of tissues at the site, which will no longer conduct electrical impulses. An ablation is usually done following a diagnostic study to confirm arrhythmia called an EP.
