Study Affirms Value Of Non-Surgical Treatment For Arrhythmia

d. Underlying heart disease was present in 270 patients.

Results showed that catheter ablation could be performed with a high level of success (95 percent), a low recurrence rate (6 percent) and a relatively low incidence of major complications (3 percent). The one-year survival rate after catheter ablation was 98 percent.

In addition, the researchers noted that the probability for success was highest among medical centers that performed the greatest number of procedures on an annual basis.

Other institutions involved in the study were: Children's Hospital, Boston; Duke University Medical Center, Durham, N.C.; Good Samaritan Hospital, Los Angles; Krannert Institute, Indianapolis; Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, Ill.; Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn.; Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston; Northside Cardiology, Indianapolis; St. Francis Hospital, Tulsa, Okla.; Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, Norfolk, Va.; Stanford University Medical Center, Stanford, Calif.; Sutter Memorial Hospital, Sacramento, Calif.; Temple University Medical Center, Philadelphia; University of Alabama at Birmingham; University Hospital of Cleveland; University of Massachusetts Medical Center, Worcester, Mass.; and Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, Tenn.
