INTRODUCTION Ablation has become first-line therapy for managing many pediatric patients with atrioventicular accessory pathway or atrioventricular nodal-mediated supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). Studies to date have all focused on elimination of the SVT substrate; yet, there are no studies to document whether this results in improved quality of life (QoL) scores. OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate whether a successful catheter ablation improved QoL scores in pediatric… CONTINUE READING
