Duke physicians have tremendous experience and success treating complex heart rhythm problems, also known as arrhythmias.
An arrhythmia is an abnormal heart rhythm that occurs when the heart’s electrical system malfunctions. This malfunction results in the heart beating irregularly, too fast, or too slow.
Symptoms of arrhythmia include fatigue, exercise intolerance, weakness, dizziness, fainting, and palpitations.
Duke provides comprehensive services for patients with arrhythmias. We offer state-of-the-art catheter-ablation and arrhythmia-mapping techniques for diagnosis and treatment. Specific programs offered at Duke include:
Treatments for arrhythmias include medications, catheter ablation, and implantation of pacemakers or implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD).
And patients can receive new therapies even before they become widely available by participating in clinical trials. For more information, visit our clinical trials listing.
Duke heart rhythm services are offered by Duke’s Division of Cardiology and the Duke Heart Center.
