BACKGROUND Radiofrequency catheter ablation requires precise positioning of the ablation electrode. Fluoroscopically guided catheter manipulation has limitations, and there are risks of radiation exposure. The purpose of this study was to examine the feasibility of guiding catheter ablation within the right atrium with catheter-based intracardiac echocardiography. METHODS AND RESULTS A 10F, 10-MHz intracardiac imaging catheter was used to direct an ablation electrode at four or five anatomic… CONTINUE READING
