By: Katie Williams, Ivanhoe Health Correspondent (Ivanhoe Newswire)- Researchers have completed the first study of a procedure which uses three dimensional maps to determine the location of electrical signals in children´s hearts. This could help cardiologists correct rapid heart rhythms in young patients. Children who have atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia, or AVNRT, suffer from disruptions in the heart's electrical system that causes sudden rapid heart rates. Patients...

In a multicenter study, catheter ablation has been shown in a randomized clinical trial to significantly outperform anti-arrhythmic drug (AAD) therapy for the treatment of symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation, or AFib as it is more commonly referred to, is the most prevalent cardiac arrhythmia (heart rhythm disorder) and one of the most common causes of stroke. In data presented here today at the American Heart Association's Annual Scientific Sessions, patients...
