PURPOSE To assess if real-time magnetic resonance (MR) imaging-guided radiofrequency (RF) ablation for atrial flutter is feasible in patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study complied with the Declaration of Helsinki and was approved by the local ethics committee. All patients were informed about the investigational nature of the procedures and provided written informed consent. Ten patients (six men; mean age ± standard deviation, 68 years ± 10) with symptomatic atrial flutter underwent… CONTINUE READING
