SVT Ablation

What is SVT ablation?

Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) ablation is a procedure that allows Dr. Inamdar at Vein, Heart and Vascular Institute an opportunity to create scar tissue on your heart to stop abnormal electrical signals that cause an irregular heartbeat.

SVT ablation is a treatment option for heart rhythm irregularities occurring in the upper chambers of the heart that triggers an abnormally fast heartbeat. The goal of treatment is to restore a normal heartbeat and increase your quality of life.

What are the symptoms of supraventricular tachycardia?

Supraventricular tachycardia causes your heart to beat so fast it doesn’t have time to relax between contractions. This can result in not enough blood filling the heart to supply the body with needed oxygen and nutrients.

As a result, you can experience a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Fainting
  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness

You may also feel chronic fatigue that decreases your overall quality of life. Your symptoms of SVT may also be worse if you already have existing heart conditions.

When should I consider SVT ablation?

In many cases, SVT ablation is reserved for last resort treatment when other therapies aren’t relieving your irregular heartbeat and related symptoms.

The ablation procedure allows Dr. Inamdar at Vein, Heart and Vascular Institute to create scar tissue in the heart with the goal to disrupt erratic electrical signals and restore your normal heartbeat. Treatment is effective in quickly relieving associated symptoms of an irregular heartbeat.

Dr. Inamdar specializes in ablation procedures for SVT and other heart-related conditions. He offers scar-creating ablation procedures, including:

Atrial tachycardia ablation

Atrial tachycardia ablation addresses irregular heartbeats that originate in the atria, or upper chambers, of your heart by creating scar tissue to disrupt erratic signals.

Atrial flutter ablation

Atrial flutter ablation addresses typical and atypical heart flutters starting in the atrial chambers of the heart by damaging heart tissue to interfere with abnormal electrical signals.

Accessory pathway ablation

Treats typical and atypical electrical signal dysfunction in the accessory pathways, which are the muscular connections that connect the upper and lower heart chambers.

Based on your existing condition and your heart’s health history, Dr. Inamdar at Vein, Heart and Vascular Institute can determine if an ablation procedure is right for addressing the root cause of your irregular heartbeat. He customizes a treatment plan to ensure the procedure is safe and effective for treating your issues and to provide you with long-term results.
