Allegheny General Hospital Doctors Perform Innovative Treatment for Ventricular Tachycardia

Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) - Heart specialists at Allegheny General Hospital (AGH) have joined a select group in the country offering patients who suffer from the common and potentially deadly heart rhythm disorder ventricular tachycardia(VT) a new, minimally invasive therapy called epicardial VT ablation.

One of the leading causes of sudden cardiac death, VT is an abnormal, rapid heart rhythm that start’s in the heart’s ventricles and is caused by tissue that disrupts the heart’s electrical system. The condition makes the heart considerably less efficient and without treatment it can lead to heart failure and cardiac arrest.

The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
