Dr. Su shares if adverse reactions are common when foreign objects are placed into the body during a heart catheter ablation procedure.

Dr. Su:
So in general, these are very well tolerated procedures. These are fairly compatible with anything that we put inside the body, and these are only short lived. Very, very rarely would anybody have an allergic or adverse reaction with foreign object inside a body for something like this.
