Arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat that impacts blood flow in the body. One form, ventricular tachycardia, is the leading cause of cardiac arrest. The condition has a long history of complicated and often ineffective treatments that require extensive surgery.
Using this new procedure, physicians can directly target damaged heart tissue and restore the heart back to a safe and healthy rhythm. In trials, the non-invasive procedure takes less than 15 minutes, unlike traditional options which require 4 to 10 hours of sedated, invasive surgery.
Roy Beinart, M.D. and Professor Tzvi Simon, M.D. at Israel's Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer, say the radiation treatment is a game-changer. "This non-invasive procedure, which only takes about 15 minutes, has the potential to help so many people that were simply out of treatment options. Initial trials have been very promising. We have given heart patients their lives back. This is the kind of innovative work that is performed at Sheba Medical Center," said Dr. Roy Beinart, Director at the Davidai Arrhythmia Centerat Sheba's Heart Institute.
Sheba Medical Center, along with a handful of hospitals across the United States are currently using this revolutionary technique, with the latest testing being conducted at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.
