If you suffer from cardiac arrhythmia, you want the treatment option that can restore your quality of life and return you to your normal active routine.

Medication is typically the first line of therapy but can be severely limiting and lose effect over time.
Implanted devices can cause physical pain when delivering therapeutic treatment.
Catheter ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that treats the diseased areas of the heart with radiofrequency (RF) energy to restore regular rhythm.

The manual catheter is stiff, difficult to manipulate to the desired spot and may even puncture the heart.
