The Congenital Heart Center is committed to providing the highest standard of care to help individuals live longer, healthier lives.
Arrhythmia is an abnormal rhythm of the heart, either too rapid (tachycardia) or slow (bradycardia). Problems with heart rhythm can also cause the heart to pump less effectively. Certain arrhythmias can increase the risk of other medical problems like stroke or blood clots.
Arrhythmias can be an important problem in children and adults with congenital heart disease. Signs of arrhythmia include rapid heartbeat, dizziness and fainting.
There are different types of arrhythmia, including:
The Congenital Heart Center’s fellowship-trained pediatric electrophysiologist helps manage arrhythmias in children, young adults, as well as adults with congenital heart disease. When a child has a complex arrhythmia in association with a congenital heart defect, our electrophysiologist works together with pediatric interventional cardiology to provide the most appropriate and advanced treatment.
We use state-of-the-art technology that is specially geared toward children, including catheter ablations using 3-D mapping with minimal fluoroscopy, to decrease a child's exposure to radiation.
Our expert electrophysiology services include:
