• Catheter ablation works by scarring or destroying tissue in your heart that triggers an abnormal heart rhythm.
  • Catheter ablation uses a long flexible tube inserted through your artery or vein in your groin and guided to your heart to deliver energy in the form of heat or excessive cold.
  • It is used to treat arrhythmias.
