We assessed the usefulness of routine follow-up electrophysiologic studies after successful catheter ablation for supraventricular tachycardia and the role of event monitoring as an alternative modality in 310 patients at 11 centers using an investigational catheter ablation system with closed-loop temperature control. A routine follow-up electrophysiologic study between 1 and 3 months after ablation was required as part of the study protocol, and patients developing palpitations after ablation… CONTINUE READING
