Dr. Mathew was interviewed recently for a story discussing the technology of Catheter Ablation. A brand new $1.5 million dollar lab at Venice Regional Medical Center houses a machine that scans the catheter and completes a 3D map, virtually eliminating the need for x-ray. Once the catheter is inside, Dr. Mathew detects the source of the irregular heartbeat, and with a tap of a foot petal he blasts heat energy at the abnormal tissues that’s causing the problem. This highly effective method of treating atrial fibrillation is a relatively quick fix for a potentially dangerous problem. View the full story.
