Radio-frequency (RF) cardiac ablation has been very successful for treating arrhythmias related with atrioventricular junction and accessory pathways with successful cure rates of more than 90%. Even though ventricular tachycardia (VT) is a more serious problem, it is known to be rather difficult to cure VT using RF ablation. In order to apply RF ablation(More)
While most commercial ablation units and research systems can provide catheter tip temperature during ablation, they do not provide information about the temperature change inside the myocardium, which determines the lesion size. We present the details of a flow simulation and temperature measurement system, which allows the monitoring of the temperature(More)
