Electrogram-gated radiofrequency ablations with duty cycle power delivery negate effects of ablation catheter motion.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Cardiac and respiratory movements cause catheter instability. Lateral catheter sliding over target endocardial surface can lead to poor tissue contact and unpredictable lesion formation. We describe a novel method of overcoming the effects of lateral catheter sliding movements using an electrogram-gated pulsed power ablation. METHODS AND… (More)
