Electrophysiology Care

In Springfield, Mercy's Cardiology Clinic stands out in cardiac electrophysiology. We skillfully assess and treat patients with various heart rhythm challenges.

Hybrid AFib Therapy

Patients with strong and persistent AFib that doesn’t respond to other treatments may benefit from this approach.

An electrophysiologist and a cardiac surgeon work together to perform this two-step, “convergent” procedure. They open two small incisions, one under the sternum or breastbone and one in the upper thigh. Guided by an “electrical map” of your heart, they locate the source of the irregular signals that cause AFib and create small lesions on both the inside and outside of the heart to block these signals.  

Patients generally remain in the hospital for observation for two to three days following hybrid AFib therapy. 

What is Lead Extraction?

A lead (pronounced “leed,” not “led”) is a tiny wire implanted in the body during pacemaker surgery. It’s threaded through a vein and delivers a small electrical pulse from the pacemaker to the heart, providing a steady, regular beat. Depending on the heart condition, as many as three leads may be needed.

Sometimes, however, the lead needs to be removed (or “extracted”) and replaced. Common reasons include:

  • Scar tissue buildup, which can block the electrical pulse from the pacemaker
  • Infection
  • Malfunction

Extracting and replacing the lead requires specialized equipment used by highly trained cardiologists. Mercy Hospital has two cardiologists on staff who are trained in lead extraction, ensuring that you don’t have to leave Springfield to get the care you need.
