Cardiac arrhythmia: this scientific innovation makes it possible to treat it definitively!
according to Paris American Hospitalit is now possible to treat cardiac arrhythmia thanks to a technological device capable of ablating the short circuits responsible for cardiac arrhythmias.
A normal heart rate is required 60-100 beats per minute. is abnormal when it exceeds 100 beats per minute or less than 50 beats per minute. And when it changes for no apparent reason above, we are talking about cardiac arrhythmia. This cardiac arrhythmia is usually caused by cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure, valvulopathy, heart failure, myocardial infarction. Another possible cause may be a hormonal disorder. This disease is very serious and there are many in France 700,000 people have been diagnosed. It is fatal without treatment and even with treatment. But the good news is that scientific progress is alive and it is now treatable.
What is cardiac arrhythmia?
Resting heart rate is important 50 to 100 beats per minute. This interval varies from one individual to another. Depending on the individual activity state, the heart rate may increase or decrease. Other events can affect this heart rate. For this purpose coffee, medication, fear stress, anger, outdoor temperature, medication. For some, these events, for others, emotions are transient. So there should be an increase or decrease in heart rate. On the other hand, when the heart rate fluctuates for a long time without any reason, then the subject shows the following symptoms.Heart arrhythmia. It’s actually a heart arrhythmia a rhythm disorder that affects the atria, ventricles, and all organs of the heart. It should be noted that the atria are the main organs of the heart rhythm. And when they are affected, the entire cardiovascular system is affected. What can cause heart disease? stroke, heart failure, respiratory failure, etc..
What is a heart rhythm disorder?
A number of abnormalities and dysfunctions are at the origin of heart disorders. The first disorder observed is atrial and ventricular fibrillation.
Atrial fibrillation : Atrial fibrillation, caused by irregular contraction of the atria, is the most common cardiac arrhythmia. It is also the most serious form. Indeed, it occurs after poor filling of the ventricles. At this stage, the blood becomes clotted and thus causes strokes and other heart attacks.
ventricular fibrillation : At this point cardiac arrest is inevitable and even death of the subject. Indeed, when ventricular fibrillation occurs, the ventricles beat excessively it reaches a speed of 250 times per minute. At this level, the ventricles are mechanically no longer able to contract. This causes the heart to stop and the subject to die.
Can heart arrhythmia be treated?
Indeed, on the site Paris American Hospital, we can read that French, European and American scientific recommendations favor radiofrequency ablation or cryotherapy as a treatment. Because this method is more therapeutic than antiarrhythmic drugs. To this end, it is stated as follows: “Today, French, European and American recommendations mainly place ablation with radiofrequency or cryotherapy as the first-line treatment, since it guarantees the definitive cure of a single cardiac arrhythmia and especially of atrial fibrillation.This means that this ablation is the only way to definitively and completely cure cardiac arrhythmia.
How will this operation be carried out?
Surgery will be performed. It is performed under general anesthesia of the body to allow the patient to suffer less. Rhythmologist will be responsible for this transaction. He will insert a catheter into a vein at the level of the groin, as marked on site Paris American Hospital. This catheter will then be advanced into the cardiac atria, specifically the pulmonary artery inlet. This operation allows visualize the heart and all cardiac contractions. Visual reconstruction of short circuits. And that’s where the ablation will take place. This can be ablation with radiofrequency or cryotherapy. The first ablation is required to create lesions that will isolate the abnormal electrical signals, thereby preventing them from spreading to the rest of the heart. It is required according to the second Paris American Hospital real-time electrocution testing using an inflated and cooled balloon at the pulmonary vein inlet. Gas at -60°.
