Mar 20, 2018 · Arrhythmia Management in Adult Congenital Heart Disease in Congenital Heart Disease

Christopher McLeod, M.D.

Mayo Clinic electrophysiologist Christopher McLeod, M.B., Ch.B., Ph.D., discusses arrhythmia management in adult congenital heart disease patients.

The most common types of arrhythmias are atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter. In many patients, these arrhythmias can go unrecognized. However, in adults with congenital heart disease, these arrhythmias can often result in decompensation, shortness of breath, and fatigue. Treatment for atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter can include medical therapy or catheter ablation.
