OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate clinical and electrophysiologic characteristics of AT in patients after surgical ASD repair as well as outcome after ablation. BACKGROUND Atrial tachycardias (AT) are a common complication after surgical closure of an atrial septal defect (ASD). METHODS From a prospective ablation database we analyzed data of patients with a history of ASD repair who presented to our institution for AT ablation. We investigated ECG characteristics and the… CONTINUE READING
