BACKGROUND It is important to increase lesion size to improve the success rate for radiofrequency ablation of ischemic ventricular tachycardia. This study of radiofrequency ablation, with adjustment of power to approach a preset target temperature, ie, temperature-controlled ablation, explores the effect of catheter-tip length, ablation site, and convective cooling on lesion dimensions. METHODS AND RESULTS In vitro strips of porcine left ventricular myocardium during different levels of… CONTINUE READING
