Can A Laser Be Used To Treat Heart Rhythm Problems?

Question: Can a laser be used to treat heart rhythm problems, and how does it work?

Answer:Well, it's experimental. There is an approach which uses laser as part of a balloon technique. It's investigational at this time.

In essence, it's trying to replace the radio frequency ablation with a more-focused laser beam that also heats up the area that, where it could be directed to a very precise location.

So, this is still investigational and experimental and it is not something that is currently being used.
