O que é a Treatment of Percutaneous Atrial Fibrillation

Cardiac Ablation is performed in Hemodynamics centers, where there are advanced image generation equipment and others that allow monitoring of blood pressure, temperature and heart rate.

Descrição do procedimento

First, an electrophysiological study will be carried out whose objective is to map the points that produce irregular electrical impulses. In this step, a catheter will be inserted into your body through a puncture, which can be made in the femoral artery. In some cases, access may be through the arm, chest or neck. The doctor will guide this catheter to the left atrium to identify the points.

After mapping, ablation is performed. The catheter will be replaced by another with a small device that will emit pulses or intense cold to isolate or cauterize tissues and vessels responsible for the arrhythmia. Pulmonary veins are usually isolated.

The patient may be kept under observation for 24 hours. Before medical discharge, the patient will receive a series of instructions detailing the care to be taken in the post-intervention period, which is usually seven days. After this period, you can continue with your daily routine.

The duration of treatment for percutaneous atrial fibrillation is normally 100 minutes. Patients are discharged after 1-2 days.
Regarding work activity, after 7 days the patient will be able to return to work. Normally, full mobility recovery is at the end of XX and moderate physical activity at XX.
