Tachycardia, besides being treated by drugs, may be cured by cardiac catheter ablation. The tip of a catheter is inserted through the femoral vein and then guided to the chamber of the heart where the abnormal electrical signals is produced in order to destroy the abnormal tissue (radiofrequency ablation) and correct the irregular heartbeat without damaging the rest of the heart.
In the majority of cases the procedure is an effective mean to cure tachycardia once and for all without additional check-up, while with particularly complex arrhythmias it can be of use reducing the symptoms, but patients should continue any treatments and checks-up.
