BACKGROUND AND METHODS In this study we used two different approaches in radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) of the left free wall atrioventricular accessory pathway (AP): the retrograde transaortic (TAo) approach and the transseptal (TSA) one. Our aim was to evaluate the success rate and the duration of the two procedures. From May 1, 1991 to April 30, 1992, 33 pts (23 M, 10 F; mean age 38 +/- 16 years, range 14-66) with left free wall atrioventricular AP were selected among a 57 patient… CONTINUE READING
