Abstract

Radiofrequency catheter ablation is a highly effective, curative treatment for arrhythmias related to accessory atrioventricular connections. Compared with medical therapy, ablation is more definitive, is more cost- effective, and is associated with a lower risk of proarrhythmia. This article updates the reader on the current indications, techniques, and innovations related to ablation of accessory pathways using radiofrequency energy.
