Ablation of Ventricular Arrhythmia

Ablation of Ventricular Arrhythmia: Volume and Success Rates

2020, N = 264

Cleveland Clinic is a national referral center for patients with ventricular arrhythmias. In 2020, 264 ventricular arrhythmia ablation procedures were performed, 90% of which resulted in immediate procedural success.

Ventricular arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythms that originate in the bottom chambers of the heart (ventricles). The multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, and healthcare professionals in the Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart, Vascular & Thoracic Institute's Ventricular Arrhythmia Center are dedicated to diagnosing and treating patients with ventricular arrhythmias.

Ventricular Arrhythmia Ablation: Major Complications

2020, N = 264

The overall riskᵃ of major complications associated with ventricular arrhythmia ablation at Cleveland Clinic in 2020 was 3.8%, which is lower than the benchmark rate of 10%.¹
