OBJECTIVES We sought to evaluate the efficacy of anatomically based radiofrequency catheter ablation for the treatment of intraatrial reentrant tachycardia in patients with previous atrial surgery. BACKGROUND Intraatrial reentrant tachycardias, a common late complication of atrial surgery, are often refractory to standard medical management. Data from experimental animals and from humans indicate that anatomic barriers resulting from residual atrial scars provide a substrate for intraatrial… CONTINUE READING
