Electrophysiology and Cardiac Arrhythmia Service

Yale-New Haven Hospital heart rhythm specialists use the latest diagnostics, medications, devices and innovative approaches to care for patients with irregular heart rhythms, heart palpitations and slow and rapid heart rhythms.

Our cardiac electrophysiologists treat patients with all types of heart rhythm disorders, including:

  • Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Atrial flutter
  • Bradycardia
  • Brugada Syndrome
  • Cardiac resynchronization therapy (biventricular pacemakers)
  • Defibrillator and pacer insertion
  • Device follow-up, including remote home monitoring
  • Device infections
  • Long QT Syndrome
  • Premature atrial and ventricular beats
  • Supraventricular tachycardia
  • Syncope
  • Ventricular arrhythmias
  • Ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation
  • Wolff-Parkinson-White

Available treatments:

  • Antiarrhythmic medications
  • Cardiac ablation, including catheter and complex procedures
  • Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) for congestive heart failure
  • Complicated ablation procedures and pulmonary vein isolations
  • Diagnostic electrophysiology studies and risk stratification
  • Electrical cardioversion
  • Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and pacemaker insertion
  • Laser lead extraction
  • Minimaze procedure
  • Robotic remote navigation
  • Three-dimensional arrhythmia mapping and ablation

Yale-New Haven's pediatric arrhythmia team provides electrophysiological diagnosis and treatment, including catheter ablations and pacemaker placement. To learn more, visit YNHCH's cardiac services.

Robotic Catheterization

Yale-New Haven electrophysiologists use robotic remote navigation with 3D visualization, a combination that provides accuracy and stability to the physician during electrophysiology procedures.
