Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation for the Treatment of Idiopathic Premature Ventricular Contractions Originating From the Right Ventricular Outflow Tract
Frequent idiopathic premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) have been associated with left ventricular cardiomyopathy. Idiopathic PVCs often originate from the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT), and radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is being used as a treatment to alleviate symptoms. A meta-analysis was performed to evaluate RFCA for the treatment of frequent idiopathic PVCs on heart function.

Sinus Node Modification in the Treatment of Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia: A Clinical Update
A case study of a patient with IST. Inappropriate sinus tachycardia (IST) is a clinical syndrome defined by an increase in sinus rate out of pro- portion to physiologic needs. It is an under-appreciated etiology of persistent tachycardia often misdiagnosed as anxiety or atrial tachycardia. Text. EP Lab Digest.

Sustained Ventricular Tachyarrhythmia Complicating the Radiofrequency Ablation of Typical Atrial Flutter
A 51-year-old patient with a history of non-ischemic cardiomyopathy presented with symptomatic paroxysmal atrial flutter which was demonstrated to be cavotricuspid isthmus-dependent during electrophysiologic study. During radiofrequency energy delivery, the patient developed a sustained ventricular arrhythmia with hypotension that necessitated emergent external defibrillation. This case illustrates the proarrhythmic potential of radiofrequency energy which unexpectedly complicated an atrial ablation procedure.

Trans-septal Catheterization for Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation of Cardiac Arrhythmias
Use of His bundle and coronary sinus catheters to provide anatomical and electrophysiological landmarks enables transseptal catheterization to be carried out without the need for arterial puncture or intracavity pressure measurement. We report our experience with transseptal catheterization in an electrophysiology laboratory using only electrophysiological landmarks. Text. http://www.revespcardiol.org.
