3D Mapping and PVC ablation
Only a few years ago, interventional treatment of ventricular arrhythmias (PVC, or VT) was limited to the implantation of defibrillators, a therapy that can save lives but in many patients impairs the quality of life due to frequent electrical shocks, sometimes even prolonging suffering. Increasingly, ablation of ventricular arrhythmias either as a stand-alone therapy or in conjunction with a defibrillator can help in these cases.
Do you have a finding and would like a second opinion or are you not sure whether you suffer from Venticular Extrasystoles? One of our specialists will be happy to take the time for a consultation.
What is now possible for the most complex form of ablation treatment, even on an outpatient basis, is demonstrated by our experience in recent years. With careful therapy planning, based on the latest three-dimensional mapping techniques, new catheter designs and innovative therapy concepts such as substrate modification and Purkinje modulation, we can advance into previously unattained dimensions for the long-term effectiveness of this therapy - and with the lowest complication rates.
With the VIVO system, we have the first non-invasive mapping system in Switzerland that can predict the site of origin of a ventricular arrhythmia with the highest precision (95%) even before the actual invasive procedure. This allows for the first time detailed procedure planning for the appropriate access route, the optimal form of anesthesia, the selection of catheters to be used. The often long examination time can be drastically reduced by this new procedure with high effectiveness.
