The goal of catheter ablation is to isolate the pulmonary vein to stop the rapid beating of the upper heart chambers by ablating (or blocking) the conduction pathways that trigger atrial fibrillation (AF).
Treating chronic AF using existing surgical and catheter approaches often does not assure complete isolation or interruption of reentrant conduction pathways, and as well, can produce limited long term outcomes.
Pediatric indications include the interruption of accessory A-V (atrioventricular) conduction pathways associated with tachycardia (PJRT) and Mahaim fibers.
