Pediatric Cardiac Cryoablation

First seen on March 22nd, at 5:00 p.m. EST, watch doctors at Akron Children’s Hospital as they premiered video of a six-year-old girl undergoing a cryoablation procedure to cure a rapid heart beat. With the use of 3-D mapping technology, the cardiologists at Akron Children's Hospital have been able to minimize x-ray exposure to patients undergoing ablations, and as in this Webcast, eliminate it altogether.

Akron Children’s Hospital’s Arrythmia Center Director John Clark, M.D., Associate Director Grace Smith, M.D., and the mother of the patient took part in a live panel discussion about tachycardia (rapid heart beat) and the challenges they face while dealing with the sporadic nature of irregular heart rhythms.
