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 radiation exposure-related disease. Also, the protective lead garments worn increases risks of orthopedic injury. Current advanced electroanatomic 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 electrophysiology lab staff to reduce and eliminate the use of fluoroscopy in EP catheter procedures.
In addition to 29 video clips provided by the contributors, this book also contains nine extended videos (more than 108 minutes) by Dr. Razminia that supplement the text by demonstrating step-by-step procedures and techniques.
