Is Catheter Ablation Right for You?

Atrial Fibrillation


Catheter ablation is a minimally invasive procedure which may treat atrial fibrillation. It may help you relieve AF symptoms and improve quality of life.

Your doctor may decide that you are a candidate for catheter ablation if:

  • You have symptoms of atrial fibrillation that do not respond to at least one drug for that condition
  • You cannot tolerate medications for atrial fibrillation

Keep in Mind

Although many patients benefit from catheter ablation, results may vary. As with any medical procedure, there are benefits and risks. Your doctor can help you decide if catheter ablation is right for you.
