WPW-mit-VHFLElectrical cardioversion (electrical shock) is used in treating forms of cardiac arrhythmia such as atrial fibrillation and atrial flutters. The procedure is carried out in the Nymphenburg Cardiac Catheterization Lab as an outpatient or under general anesthesia during a short stay.

In preparation, you will take a blood-thinning medication for four weeks. In addition, or as an alternative, a transesophageal echocardiogram can be required.
