Ablation is a medical procedures doctors use in order to reduce or remove tissue through radio-wave frequency. Although ablation is a standard procedure to treat a variety of medical problems, it is commonly used as a method to eliminate heart arrhythmia, which results tissues improperly built up within the heart, causing a type of short circuit that blocks the electrical signals transmitted by the heart. The tissue buildup is often a negative consequence of previous coronary surgery or procedures. Ablation procedures are also commonly used to treat endometrial problems, surface tissues and removal of liver tumors.
Medical injuries that can result from ablation can include thermal injuries to organs and tissues surrounding the tissues intended for removal. Ablation therapy is a highly specialized medical field and requires extensive training and skill.
