future ablation
Hi Everyone,
I too have psvt and am thinking about a ablation.  However, I have very bad circulation in my right let and can't have the ablation there.  Has anyone had the ablation in the arm or neck.  I have read that this can be done.

I know of no one on this forum who has had a catheter ablation performed where entry gained through other than the legs.  Access is done through both legs. That said, at 21 years of age, I had a cardiac catheterization done with access through my right arm.  This was 40 years ago though.  At the time, the physician said my arteries were still young and supple and would take the relatively rough treatment of a catheter taking a hard right turn up my arm, and around my neck.  I remembering him saying this was not possible (at the time) with older patients.  Leg access is also a relatively straight shot into the heart with no major bends along the way.
