Superior Vena Cava Isolation In Ablation Of Atrial Fibrillation.


Superior vena cava (SVC) is one of the most important non-pulmonary vein (PV) origins of atrial fibrillation (AF). SVC isolation (SVCI) is effective especially in patients with paroxysmal AF from SVC origin. However, SVCI should be carefully performed because of potential complications such as phrenic nerve paralysis, SVC stenosis, and sinus node injury… (More)
