The 7 Fr "split-tip electrode" (2.5-mm tip electrode divided longitudinally into four electrodes with an adjacent 2-mm ring electrode) improves mapping resolution due to its small recording electrodes and narrow interelectrode distances (0.1 mm). The purpose of this study was to examine the temperature-controlled ablation properties of this electrode. In… CONTINUE READING
