@phillipdobrien Hi actually yes I've had quite a few and it actually in 2 parts. The Procedure is performed by a Electrophysiologist Cardiologist or EP for short. They are usually done together depending on what the first part shows which is called a mapping of the electrical signals of the heart. If during that phase they see some that may be causing irrigular heartbeats which are called arrhythmias they will proceed to the second phase called an ablation. The ablation phase tries to stop the electrical signals that are causing issues and ablates them either by burning or freezing the nerve endings thus stopping them from sending bad signals. I hope that helps and are you being told that they may want to do one of these studies? Please let us know if you have any other questions.
Have a Blessed Day

Thank you Dana; I was told by a person in the medical device field that they now make an ablation device that has 8 tubes or ? & that each one has 8 smaller lines of some sort making 64 total & that they go into your heart & send each of the 64 lines into a wire (for lack of a better word) & they can discover which signal is faulty & the same device cauterizes it at that time (one procedure). I will look further into it & post what I find. It may allow me to get off Eliquis & lessen chances of bleeding. Thanks again ! Phillip
