Advanced Diagnostic Services
At Rideout Vascular, we understand the importance of accurate diagnosis in determining the best treatment plan for each individual. Our experts utilize advanced diagnostic technologies to assess the severity and underlying causes of Atrial Fibrillation. These include:
- Electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG): This non-invasive test records the electrical signals of your heart and helps identify any irregularities.
- Cardiac Monitoring: Continuous monitoring of your heart activity allows us to analyze your heart rhythm over an extended period.
- Echocardiogram: This imaging technique uses sound waves to create detailed images of your heart structure and function.
Once a comprehensive diagnosis is achieved, Rideout Vascular offers a wide range of personalized treatment options for Atrial Fibrillation, including:
- Medications: Our experienced physicians may prescribe medications to help regulate your heart rhythm and manage related symptoms.
- Catheter Ablation: This minimally invasive procedure involves using radiofrequency or cryo energy to destroy the abnormal heart tissue that causes the irregular heartbeat.
- Cardioversion: In certain cases, a controlled electric shock is delivered to your heart to reset its rhythm back to normal.
- Surgical Intervention: For severe and complex cases, surgical procedures such as Maze surgery or the innovative convergent procedure may be recommended to restore normal heart rhythm.
