Arrhythmia Center


The arrhythmia center specializes in the comprehensive management of cardiac arrhythmias. As one of the first centers to use catheter ablation technologies, it is one of the biggest centers in China and around the world in terms of patient volume for over past 30 years. 

The center features catheter ablation of cardiac arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia and ventricular arrhythmias. It is among the first centers to have been certified as a “Atrial Fibrillation Center of Excellence in China,” and more than 30,000 catheter ablations of AF have been performed here. 

Under the leadership of Dr Liu Xu, new technologies such as rotor ablation, intra-cardiac ultrasound-guided ablation, and zero fluoroscopy ablation have been introduced. Shanghai Chest Hospital AF Center has hosted the international training camp for Catheter Ablation of AFib and Shanghai International AFib Symposium for 11 times. Physicians including Prof Liu have been invited to perform demonstration procedures in 130 hospitals around the world. Meanwhile, there are 15 regional sub-centers in other provinces of China. More than 100 electrophysiologists have been trained here, making a great contribution to the improvement of AF management in the Asia-Pacific region.
