Catheter ablation is a non-surgical way of atrial fibrillation treatment. In catheter ablation, the doctor cuts into a patient’s chest to do the procedure. The catheter is a long and flexible tube which is inserted into a blood vessel and is guided into the heart. An AFib patient’s heartbeat is irregular, but the catheter will help his heartbeat stay in rhythm.   Related FAQs:
