Abstract

Catheter ablation using radiofrequency energy has evolved as a safe and effective means for the treatment of various supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias. Despite the overall efficacy of radiofrequency catheter ablation, cardiovascular complications can occur in a small number of patients. The purpose of this article is to review the current understanding of the risks and complications that can occur during catheter ablation procedures.
