Cardiac Electrophysiology

Cardiac Electrophysiology at selected specialists and clinics in Switzerland - Ticino.

Heart rhythm disorders (heart arrhythmias) can nowadays be cured definitively using innovative techniques that make it possible to burn some points of the heart that cause arrhythmia.

Advantage

Heart rhythm disorders (heart arrhythmias) can nowadays be cured definitively using innovative techniques that make it possible to burn some points of the heart that cause arrhythmia. This technique, called “transcatheter ablation”, practiced under local anaesthesia, has an extremely high success rate (approximately 90%) for heart rhythm disorders like atrial fibrillation or atrial arrhythmias and – first and foremost – makes regular use of drugs unnecessary in a large number of cases (approximately 80%). In other cases it may be necessary to implant a pacemaker, or a cardiac defibrillator. Cardiocentro Ticino is currently in the forefront in both domains, since it can utilise, on an experimental basis, ultra-miniature pacemakers (a few millimetres in size) and very small, yet extremely advanced, implantable defibrillators.

Finally, Cardiocentro Ticino is leading a series of next generation projects that entail the design of a mathematic model of the human heart’s electrical activity; in this way, it will be possible to simulate the electrical and mechanical alterations occurring in heart failure patients treated with pacemakers or cardiac stimulators. It will thus be possible, in a not too distant future, to offer every patient a fully customized electrical treatment.
