At the International Arrhythmia Center of the Institute of Cardiology – Fundación Cardioinfantil, in addition to taking a complete clinical history and performing a physical examination of the patient, we conduct all tests and treatments that are recognized for the study and management of all types of arrhythmias in patients of all ages, under the highest quality standards and using the most modern technology available worldwide.
a. Referrals for arrhythmia diagnosis and management
b. Referrals to reprogram all brands of implantable cardiac devices:
– Implantable Cardiac defibrillators (ICDs)
– Cardiac resynchronizers (CRT-P and CRT-Ds)
– Implantable event monitors
a. Conventional 12-lead electrocardiogram
b. Signal-averaged electrocardiogram

a. Electrophysiologic studies.
Implantation of cardiac stimulation devices (including explantation)
b. Implantable Cardiac defibrillators (ICDs).
c. Cardiac resynchronizers (CRT-P and CRT-Ds).
d. Implantable event monitors.
Ablación de toda clase de arritmias
a. Conventional ablation, which is mainly X-ray guided and is used in patients with non-complex tachycardias and does not require a detailed definition of the cardiac anatomy. This category includes ablations of:
– Nodal reentrant tachycardia.
– Accessory pathway tachycardia.
– Cavotricuspid isthmus-dependent right atrial flutter in patients with no history of
Ablation guided with 3D mapping and intra-cardiac ultrasound. This category includes all other arrhythmias which, because of their instability and complexity, require a very detailed and precise definition of the cardiac anatomy, not feasible with conventional X-rays. This group includes study and ablation of:::
– Atrial and ventricular extrasystoles.
– Atrial tachycardia.
– Non-cavotricuspid isthmus-dependent atrial flutter or atrial flutter in patients
with a history of cardiac surgery.
– Atrial fibrillation.
– Ventricular tachycardia with endocardial and epicardial mapping.
– Unsuccessful ablation of non-complex tachycardias using conventional. X-ray-guided technology or specific non complex-arrhythmias where for safety or effectiveness reasons require a more detailed and precise definition of the cardiac anatomy.
