Key Features
  • Reflects all the latest technology, including the new pulse field ablation (PFA) procedure, new balloon technologies (RF, laser, and PFA) for pulmonary vein isolation, and high-resolution 3D mapping systems.
  • Offers expert guidance on atrial tachycardia and flutter, atrial fibrillation, atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia, tachycardias related to accessory atrioventricular connections, ventricular tachycardia, transseptal catheterization techniques, ablation for pediatric patients, and patient safety and complications.
  • Contains new chapters covering Biophysics and Clinical Applications of Laser Ablation, Biophysics and Clinical Applications of Pulse Field Ablation, Multiple Strategic Approach to Ablate Atrial Fibrillation, Ablation of Challenging/Difficult Accessory Pathways, Ablation of Ventricular Tachycardia in Arrhythmogenic Ventricular Cardiomyopathy, and more.
  • Contains 450 figures, including ECGs, intracardiac recordings, 3D mapping, ultrasound, fluoroscope, and ablation images.
  • Includes numerous tables and boxes that provide quick access to key points, arrhythmia mechanisms, diagnostic criteria, target sites for ablation, use of special equipment, complications, and troubleshooting problems and their solutions.
  • Provides access to 20 video clips, including transseptal access to the left atrium, intracardiac ultrasound, and techniques of pericardial access.
  • An eBook version is included with purchase. The eBook allows you to access all of the text, figures, videos, and references, with the ability to search, customize your content, make notes and highlights, and have content read aloud. Any additional digital ancillary content may publish up to 6 weeks following the publication date.
