Cleveland Clinic electrophysiologists use specialized approaches to diagnose and treat patients with a wide variety of abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias). They are noted for their expertise in ablation procedures and management of patients with pacemakers and defibrillators.

CRT = cardiac resynchronization therapy, ICD = implantable cardioverter defibrillator

ᵃThe total number of procedures includes left atrial appendage occlusion procedures, electrophysiology studies, ICD testing, temporary pacemakers, loop recorders, and electrophysiology special procedures (endomyocardial biopsy, esophageal pacing, right heart catheterization, venography, and others). These are not included in the graph.

In the Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing section, we offer a variety of highly specialized approaches to treat patients with heart rhythm problems. The procedures may be used for diagnosis or treatment. For more information, click here: Cardiac Electrophysiology & Pacing Section.
