BACKGROUND Nonfluoroscopic intracardiac navigation systems reduce the dose of radiation in most ablation procedures. However, they have not been sufficiently studied as a sole guidance tool for electrode catheter handling. OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to assess the feasibility and safety of catheter ablation for atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia (AVNRT) without the use of fluoroscopy. METHODS We prospectively enrolled all of the patients with AVNRT (Group A) treated by… CONTINUE READING
