(This procedure/test may also be known as: RF Ablation)
RF ablation uses heat energy to burn away the abnormal or irritable area of the heart. With RF ablation, specialized catheters are threaded into the heart where the source of the arrhythmia (irregular heart beat) is identified and destroyed on contact. It has about a 95% success rate.
