INTRODUCTION Delta wave morphology correlates with the site of ventricular insertion of accessory AV pathways. Because lesions due to radiofrequency (RF) current are small and well defined, it may allow precise localization of accessory pathways. The purpose of this study was to use RF catheter ablation to develop an ECG algorithm to predict accessory pathway location. METHODS AND RESULTS An algorithm was developed by correlating a resting 12-lead ECG with the successful RF ablation site in… CONTINUE READING
