Catheter ablation has become a widely used approach to treating various cardiac arrhythmias. Traditionally, catheter ablation procedures are guided by fluoroscopic imaging to help understand catheter position during mapping. The potentially significant exposure to radiation to the patient, physician, and staff increases risks of malignancy and other radiation exposure-related disease. Also, the protective lead garments worn day in, day out, increases risks of orthopedic injury. Current advanced mapping and intracardiac echocardiography technology have allowed the development of endocardial catheter ablation techniques without the use of fluoroscopy safely and effectively. This text provides practical information for the practicing electrophysiologist, trainee, and EP lab staff to reduce and eliminate the use of fluoroscopy in EP catheter procedures.
In addition to more than 25 video clips provided by the contributors, this book also contains nine extended videos by Dr. Razminia, ranging from 5 to 35 minutes in length, that supplement the text and provide additional clarity of procedures and techniques.
