(Ablation, Transvenous Electric; Catheter Ablation, Electric; Catheter Ablation, Percutaneous; Catheter Ablation, Radiofrequency; Catheter Ablation, Transvenous)
Removal of tissue with electrical current delivered via electrodes
positioned at the distal end of a catheter. Energy sources are commonly direct current (DC-shock
) or alternating current at radiofrequencies (usually 750 kHz). The technique is used most often to ablate the AV junction and/or accessory pathways in order to interrupt AV conduction and produce AV block in the treatment of various tachyarrhythmias.
