Cure For Abnormal Heart Rhythm Available To More People

over, the new catheter, which encircles the heart chamber, does not have to be moved around to locate the source of the abnormal signal, Schmitt says.

In this study, the new device was used on patients with suspected right atrial tachycardia because the right atrium is the easiest heart chamber to access, Schmitt says. He and his colleagues expect it may ultimately prove effective in mapping other kinds of abnormal heart rhythms. For example, it could be used in patients with irregular heartbeat arising from the heart's ventricles, a location that is also difficult to map.

Co-authors of the study are: Bernhard Zrenner, M.D.; Michael Schneider, M.D.; Martin Karch, M.D.; Gjin Ndrepepa, M.D.; Isabel Deisenhofer, M.D.; Sonja Weyerbrock, M.D.; Jrgen Schreieck, M.D.; and Albert Schmig, M.D. NR 99-1038 (Circ/Schmitt)
