Use of three-dimensional catheter guidance and trans-esophageal echocardiography to eliminate fluoroscopy in catheter ablation of left-sided accessory pathways.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Newer technologies such as three-dimensional mapping and echocardiography can decrease x-ray exposure during catheter ablation. Many right-sided tachycardias can now be ablated without fluoroscopy. Left-sided tachycardias, however, have not yet been ablated using a zero fluoroscopy approach. OBJECTIVE This study sought to examine the utility of… (More)
