State of the art for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias

Tecnología de vanguardia para el tratamiento de las arritmias cardíacas

According to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide. In our country, more than 150,000 people die every year from heart problems, especially from acute myocardial

Cardiovascular diseases are a group of conditions that occur in the heart and blood vessels. These diseases include: cardiac arrhythmiasHeart rate or rhythm disturbances in which the heart suffers from tachycardia (beats that are too fast), bradycardia (beats that are too slow), or a mixture of both. In some cases, and if left untreated, arrhythmias can trigger strokes, blood clots, sudden death, and heart failure.

However, 80% of cardiac arrhythmias can be treated with catheter ablation, eliminating the need to continue persistent drug consumption in most cases.

this catheter ablation It is the process of inserting long, thin, flexible tubes (catheters) into the heart, usually through a vein or artery in the groin, and then directed to the heart to burn off and thus correct the cardiac tissue arrhythmia.


While most arrhythmias are treated with conventional systems, there are others that are complex and therefore require specialized mapping known as CARTO, which consists of a three-dimensional (3D) electro-anatomical tracking or mapping that allows navigation within. Cardiac cavities in real time, without fluoroscopy and with great precision. Thanks to this, the place of origin of arrhythmias is found, which facilitates their elimination.

How to eliminate arrhythmia?

The electrophysiologist (cardiologist with high expertise in electrophysiology, i.e. specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmias) will, through cardiac ablation with the heat technique (radiofrequency) emitted by the catheter, incinerate the heart tissue causing the irregular electrical signals, thereby treating the arrhythmia.

Benefits for the patient KARTO system

◉ Minimally invasive procedure (done from the groin).
◉ 80% of cardiac arrhythmias can be treated with catheter ablation, eliminating persistent drug consumption in most cases.
◉Reducing or eliminating radiation during catheter ablations because it is not necessary to use X-rays to follow the catheter.
◉The procedure takes about four hours and usually only requires an overnight hospital stay.


Cardiac ablation procedures with the CARTO system are performed in what are known as “intervention rooms”, which are operating room-type spaces specifically for minimally invasive techniques.

Thus, ABC Medical Center has a state-of-the-art infrastructure for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias and is the only private hospital with a room specially designed for the treatment of such ailments.

It is important to note that ABC Medical Center has a care program for acute myocardial infarction. AMI codeIt leads to emergency care, which is internationally certified and follows a strict care protocol for people suffering from chest pain and discomfort, preferring timely care to improve their survival and reduce complications.

this ABC Cardiovascular Center It concentrates medical professionals with current certifications from the Mexican Council of Cardiology, thereby providing professional excellence in the care of cardiac arrhythmias with the CARTO team.
