Ventricular Arrhythmias (VT/V-tach)
UI Health offers the full line of diagnostic and therapeutic options for patients presenting with life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias. From implantation of implantable-cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) to catheter ablation of ventricular premature beats or tachycardia, we have the expertise to provide successful treatment. During catheter ablation, advanced 3-dimensional mapping systems are used to complete the procedure. We offer endocardial as well as epicardial ablation depending on the underlying disease process. Epicardial ablation is often necessary in patients presenting with ventricular tachycardia due to arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C) or dilated cardiomyopathy.
