BACKGROUND We sought to assess the impact of routine use of a nonfluoroscopic navigation system in the procedural aspects of radiofrequency ablation of accessory pathways (APs) in pediatric and congenital heart disease (CHD) patients and the reduction of fluoroscopy in different pathway locations. METHODS This was a retrospective review of 192 patients, divided in two groups: group A (76 patients, fluoroscopic only ablation) and group B (116 patients, combined use of fluoroscopy and a… CONTINUE READING
