The Equine Cardioteam Ghent University runs a highly specialized unit for clinical patients and for research. All state of the art techniques are available to perform advanced Ultrasound, ECG monitoring, intracardiac ECG, IntraCardiac Echo (ICE), catheterisation, transvenous electrical cardioversion (TVEC, click for video), pacemaker implantation (click for video), advanced electrophysiological studies of arrhythmias and even 3D electro-anatomical mapping (Rhythmia, Boston Scientific). Recently, for the first time, successful RF (radiofrequency) ablation has been performed in horses to terminate sustained arrhythmias using Rhythmia to localize the ectopic focus.
