About Ventricular Tachycardia
Ventricular tachycardia (VT) is a fast, abnormal heart rate that may lead to sudden cardiac arrest if not treated successfully. VT treatments include use of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), antiarrhythmic medications, and catheter ablation. Catheter ablation involves the delivery of energy through a catheter that is inserted into the femoral artery or vein and guided to the area of the heart where the arrhythmia is occurring. The delivery of the energy causes tissue scarring, which can interrupt the electrical signals causing the irregular heartbeat. Current treatments are often insufficient in controlling VT and can be associated with significant side effects.1,2,3,4 Cardiac radioablation has recently emerged as a non-invasive treatment alternative to catheter ablation for this patient population.
