INTRODUCTION Ablation of anteroseptal (parahisian) pathways may be difficult using conventional catheters. METHODS AND RESULTS Two patients (51 and 20 years old) underwent ablation of a parahisian accessory pathway using the magnetic navigation system Niobe (Stereotaxis, Inc.), which consists of two external permanent magnets (0.08 Tesla) that steer a small magnet embedded in the tip of the ablation catheter. A motor drive allows the advancement or retraction of the catheter. From the control… CONTINUE READING
