Focal Atrial Tachycardia

  • 334 Accesses

Abstract

Contemporary approach to treat atrial tachycardias requires almost always a 3D mapping system to find the origin of atrial foci; this allows to easily reduce or to eliminate the need of fluoroscopy to approach these targets. We describe the approach to minimal or no fluoro cases while performing atrial tachycardia ablation.
