Melvin Scheinman Author

Therapy of Cardiac Arrhythmia.

Department of Cardiac Electrophysiology, University of California-San Francisco, San Francisco


Dr. Melvin Scheinman, one of the pioneers of cardiac electrophysiology (the study of the heart's electrical activity), was the first to perform catheter ablation on humans. His team was instrumental in developing radiofrequency energy applications for cardiac arrhythmias. Scheinman and his colleagues also developed techniques for better understanding the mechanisms and treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders in patients with inappropriate sinus tachycardia – a condition in which resting heart rate is abnormally high – and to cure patients with automatic junctional tachycardia, in which one area of the heart is leading to a too-fast beat.

Subjects of specialization: catheter ablation, radiofrequency , automatic junctional tachycardia, cardiac arrhythmias, heart's electrical activity
