[Ablation of atypical, fast atrio-ventricular nodal tachycardia in a pregnant woman--a case report].

Abstract

We describe a case of a 24-year-old pregnant woman (35 hbd) who was admitted because of fast (240 bpm) supraventricular tachycardia which required electrical external cardioversion (transesophageal atrial pacing and drugs were ineffective). She underwent RF ablation during which a single RF application effectively cured atypical atrio-ventricular nodal tachycardia. The duration of fluoroscopy was 53 seconds. The child was delivered on time and with no complications.
