Center for Heart & Vascular Health
The Gerret and Tatiana Copeland Arrhythmia Center
The Gerret and Tatiana Copeland Arrhythmia Center at the Center for Heart & Vascular Health is a fully capable electrophysiology suite that features advanced stereotaxis technology for the diagnosis and treatment of heart-rhythm disorders, or arrhythmia. Using the Stereotaxis Niobe Magnetic Navigation System, we are the only hospital in Delaware and among a select group of high-volume centers nationally with the capability to perform a new type of ablation—a corrective procedure—that cures atrial fibrillation in up to 80 percent of our patients.
Advanced care for your heart's electrical system
Our electrophysiologists, cardiologists and cardiac surgeons offer comprehensive clinical services to diagnose and treat heart-rhythm disorders. These include:
- Pacemakers and other cardiac devices.
- Electrophysiology studies.
- Surgical procedures.
We also offer other promising treatments for arrhythmia, in which electrophysiologists cardiac surgeons work in tandem to correct and repair the heart and its rhythm.
The advanced capability of stereotaxis
Atrial fibrillation affects more than 2 million Americans, but it is a difficult condition to treat. Stereotaxis remote navigation creates real-time, three-dimensional pictures that allow a cardiologist to diagnose and regulate the heart's rhythm.
What makes stereotaxis technology so revolutionary are magnetic fields that allow physicians direct control of the tip of soft catheters. Unlike other catheters used for radiofrequency ablation, stereotaxis catheters are extremely flexible and easily manipulated through the cardiac blood vessels. For patients, this means increased safety and shorter procedures.
