Balloon cryoablation is a method for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation ablation that has developed as an alternative to radiofrequency ablation.
Radiofrequency ablation is a procedure that enables the treatment of many types of rapid heart beat (tachycardia).
Cardiac electrophysiology study is an invasive examination conducted in patients in whom a superficial 12-lead ECG and other non-invasive (painless) examination do not provide sufficient information to diagnose and treat heart rhythm disorders.
An implantable loop recorder (ILR) is a small, USB-sized electrical device that can be implanted with a simple surgery under the patient’s skin.
Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) treats some types of heart failure. Heart failure is a condition when the heart is not able to pump (contract itself) enough blood to the body.
An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is an electronic device similar to a pacemaker that is implanted under the skin of a patient.
The temporary pacemaker (TPM) involves heart stimulation due to often slow heart rate (bradycardia) or less frequently rapid heart rate (tachycardia), for a short time until the cause of heart rhythm disturbance is eliminated or until a permanent pacemaker is implanted.
Electrical cardioversion, often called (electro)cardioversion, is a procedure that treats abnormal and usually fast heart rhythm (cardiac arrhythmia).
