Arrhythmias (Heart Rhythm Disturbances) and Surgical Subendocardial Resection
In certain cases of a ventricular tachycardia, specific abnormalities within the heart muscle might be responsible for generating the arrhythmia. A surgical subendocardial resection is one way to address this.
A surgical subendocardial resection has the potential to help treat specific arrhythmias by removing scar tissue underneath the lining of the heart. In these cases, the scar tissue within the heart muscle is responsible for generating the arrhythmia.
