At the Louis & Peaches Owen Heart Hospital, electrophysiology mapping is used to find the source of electrical problems within the heart. Electrophysiologists use advanced imaging and diagnostic catheter technology to create a 3-D "map" of electrical activity within the patient's heart. Once the source of an irregular heartbeat has been located it can be treated through ablation, ICD or medication.
Ablation is a therapeutic procedure performed via surgery or minimally invasive catheterization that destroys targeted heart tissue to block or eliminate irregular heartbeats.
