Impact of Cardiac Catheter Ablation
A Next Step in AFib Management: Cardiac Catheter Ablation
Cardiac Catheter Ablation is an advanced treatment option for patients who become refractory to medications.1 It’s minimally invasive and works by targeting and ablating the heart tissue that is causing the abnormal heart rhythm.2-7
Freedom from Atrial Arrythmia
After a single procedure, there was an 84%-94% freedom from atrial arrhythmia in paroxysmal AFib at 1 year.2,3,4
Lower Risk of Dementia
As observed in recent studies, compared to AADs, catheter ablation was associated with a 41% lower risk of dementia.8
Comparing Probability of AF-Related Complications*
Reductions in the probability of AF-related complications compared to drug therapy over a 7-year follow-up period:9,10
