Ablation is a minimally invasive treatment option for a heart rhythm problem that causes the heart to beat irregularly. Ablation eliminates the abnormal tissue that causes the irregular heart rhythm.

An Inova pediatric electrophysiologist guides a catheter to the heart and locates the tissue to be treated. Radiofrequency energy (heat generated from high frequency radiowaves) passes through the catheter to the precise target area and destroys the tissue causing the irregularity.
