An irregular heartbeat can be life-threatening. Our cutting-edge technology and experience can help you get back to living life to the fullest.
Heartland Cardiology us proud to offer the leading cardiac rhythm management service in Kansas. We use cutting-edge studies in electrophysiology to identify the specific source of irregular heartbeats (arrhythmia). We help guide our patients through the best course of treatment based on some of the best diagnostic information available.
Common Types of Arrhythmias
- Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib)
- Heart block
- Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT)
What causes arrhythmia?
Arrhythmias (ah-RITH-me-ahs) are irregular heartbeats caused by the disruption of a part of the heart’s electrical system. This can cause the heart to beat too slow, too fast, or irregularly.
Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib)
occurs when blood flowing through the heart is not controlled property due to the left atrial appendage no longer contracting with a regular rhythm. This can result in a stroke due to the pooling and clotting of blood. The most frequent treatment option for A-Fib until recently was with blood thinners. Unfortunately, a large number of patients experienced problems with this medication but our team can now offer you new options based on the latest medical advancements.
Every year, the team of cardiac electrophysiologists and surgeons at Heartland Cardiology implant hundreds of temporary and permanent pacemakers, defibrillators and other medical devices. Every device is meticulously selected to match its specific benefits with a patient’s exact needs.
Cardiac Lead Extraction
Did you know that up to 20 percent of defibrillators result in a lead malfunction within 10 years? Heartland Cardiology has the technology, surgical support, and experience to perform extraction of infected or broken pacing and defibrillator leads in a minimally invasive fashion.
