Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) - a small device that sends electrical signals to heart when heart rate reaches dangerous levels and regulates the heart rate.
Cardiac ablation - in cardiac ablation, doctors insert a thin flexible tubes through blood vessels in the neck, arm or groin and thread them through blood vessels.. Then, heat is applied through these catheters to destroy abnormal heart tissue.
