Abstract

In 1997 almost the entire population with arrhythmias related to the presence of an anomalous AV pathway (AP) is treated successfully by radiofrequency catheter ablation (RF-CA) without excessive difficulty, but in some cases a very prolonged procedure or a second session or both are required to obtain a successful outcome [1].
