Treatment of atrial fibrillation


Лечение Мерцательной Аритмии



With this disease, the atria lose the ability to work synchronously; instead, they begin to contract chaotically - flicker. Because of this, the ventricles also begin to work irregularly. Thus, the efficiency of heart contractions is significantly reduced. Patients experience interruptions in the functioning of the heart, shortness of breath, weakness and dizziness.




 

The disorder of atrial fibrillation is that the heart rhythm differs from normal and reaches 300-700 beats/min.
This is one of the most well-known disorders of cardiac conduction and rhythm.


Symptoms of atrial fibrillation


It is not always possible for a patient to recognize an attack on his own due to the fact that atrial fibrillation may not manifest itself clearly.


As a result of arrhythmia, the ejection of blood from the heart decreases; this disorder affects the functioning of all organs and systems.



Notable symptoms of atrial fibrillation include:



  • Cardiopalmus;
  • Pain and tingling in the chest area;
  • Increased sweating;
  • Muscle weakness;
  • Dyspnea;
  • Frequent urination;
  • Dizziness and fainting;
  • An unmotivated attack of fear.

Surgical treatment

When drug therapy does not provide the necessary antiarrhythmic effect, surgical intervention is used.

There are 2 main types of surgical treatment:


  • Catheter ablation During this operation, heart cells that provoke atrial fibrillation are neutralized. In the problem area, the fused fibers that disrupt the normal conduction of impulses are opened. The tissue is opened using laser radiation, cold, electricity or a chemical reagent. Because catheter ablation generally does not involve open heart surgery, it is considered a minimally invasive method.
  • Pacemaker implantation. This device is used for patients suffering from atrial fibrillation disorders. The device maintains a normal heartbeat. The impulses supplied by the pacemaker at a certain frequency induce the heart muscle to contract at the desired frequency. Implantation of the device involves minimal surgical intervention. Therefore, the morbidity during such operations and the recovery time are minimal.

Postoperative period


After the heart rhythm is restored, it is necessary to periodically maintain it.
It is necessary to correctly diagnose and begin treatment of the disease that caused atrial fibrillation, as well as eliminate the factors that provoked the attack. Often, to prevent the development of arrhythmia, it is necessary to take medications that prevent it.
