Radiofrequency cardiac ablation – as a surgical treatment method for cardiac arrhythmias

Keywords: radiofrequency cardiac ablation, paroxysmal tachycardias, WPW syndrome, electrophysiological stu

The aim of this work was to determine efficacy and safety of radiofrequency ablation as a modern invasive method for treating arrhythmia. The essence of the operation consists in destruction of the focus generating pathological impulses resulting in arrhythmia. Analysis of 67 case histories with different stable cardiac arrhythmias subjected to the procedure of radiofrequency ablation was used for research purposes. A more common cause of paroxysmal tachycardias in women were changes in the conductive system of the atrio-ventricular node, in men – presence of concealed accessory conduction pathway (Kent bundle). The procedure was equally well tolerated by all patients, but its effectiveness was higher in men than in women (85% and 79%, respectively).
