Intraoperative mapping-guided argon laser ablation of malignant ventricular tachycardia.

Abstract

Intraoperative mapping-guided laser ablation of arrhythmogenic myocardium was performed in 5 patients with refractory sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT). Using a 15-W argon laser coupled to a 300-mu optical fiber, a bloodless laser ventriculotomy was successfully performed in 4 patients with VT. Visually- and mapping-guided endocardial ablation of 7 VT… (More)
