Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing Section

Caring for patients having difficulty with the heart's rhythm and electrical signaling, our experts in Cardiac Electrophysiology & Pacing are the leaders in the diagnosis and care of patients with atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, Wolff Parkinson White syndrome, flutter and other abnormal heart rhythms. The Cardiac Electrophysiology & Pacing section has five state-of-the-art laboratories that offer a wide range of electrophysiology and mapping and ablation procedures to patients with suspected rhythm abnormalities. Other services include an Atrial Fibrillation Clinic, remote monitoring devices, genetic testing, a full range of pacemaker and cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) devices, biventricular pacemakers, removal of leads, advanced mapping and ablation therapy, Syncope Clinic and Device Clinic.

In the Cardiac Electrophysiology & Pacing section, we offer a variety of highly specialized approaches to heart-rhythm problems. The procedures may be used to diagnose a heart problem or to treat it. Arrhythmia treatment depends on the type and severity of the arrhythmia. In some cases of arrhythmia, no treatment is necessary. These include:

Inherited arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythms that are passed down from family members. They place you at risk for dangerous heart rhythms such as ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation and sudden cardiac death. The most common arrhythmias include:

Patients may have symptoms of fainting or a history of treated cardiac arrest – or – no symptoms but a family history of these conditions.

The experienced electrophysiologists and genetic experts in the Inherited Arrhythmia Center specialize in treating patients with these conditions.

Electrophysiology Laboratory

A view of the Electrophysiology Laboratory

The Electrophysiology Laboratory at Cleveland Clinic is an 8 room procedure suite designed to perform diagnostic, therapeutic and interventional electrophysiology based procedures.

Advanced technology along with vast knowledge and skill of Cardiac Electrophysiology & Pacing physicians allow for many complex procedures and device implants, such as:

  • Pacemakers
  • Internal cardiac defibrillators
  • Loop recorder devices
  • Biventricular pacemaker and ICD devices
  • Mapping of complex arrhythmias
  • Catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation/ flutter, supraventricular tachycardias, ventricular arrhythmias, complex arrhythmias and for those who have previously failed ablations.
  • Transseptal puncture and epicardial ablations
  • External or internal cardioversion
  • Device lead extraction
  • Use of intracardiac echocardiography
  • Magnetically driven procedures including ablations and coronary sinus lead placements

The Syncope Center, located near the electrophysiology laboratories performs approximately 2,000 diagnostic studies including tilt table testing, blood volume studies and other hemodynamic and/or autonomic nervous system evaluations.
