Ablation therapy for arrhythmias and conductive disorders

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Invasive electrophysiology study is one of the most reliable tools for a pediatric electrophysiologist, allowing for accurate diagnostics and the potential for intervention. Technology has progressed rapidly over the past 20 years and continues to do so. The current era of electrophysiology studies involves more than a standard pacing study with transcatheter ablation. It has evolved to include 3-dimensional electroanatomic mapping, noncontact mapping, and intracardiac echocardiography. The fundamentals of the electrophysiology study, however, remain the same.
