BACKGROUND The current standard of care for imaging during supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) ablation uses fluoroscopy, which exposes otherwise healthy children to the potential harmful effects of radiation. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine whether the adjunct use of nonfluoroscopic imaging reduces radiation exposure during SVT ablation among children. METHODS This was a prospective, controlled, single-center study of patients age ≥8 years, weight ≥25 kg, with SVT and… CONTINUE READING
