Abstract

Now in its second edition, this practical guide offers clear-headed guidance to the successful application of catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation. This book concentrates on clinically-relevant information that providers can put to immediate use caring for patients. Takes a clear-headed practical approach to ablation of atrial fibrillation - long on actionable, clinically-relevant guidance, succinct and to-the-point on the theory behind the procedure. Edited by three leading, internationally-known electrophysiologists with extensive experience in ablation for atrial fibrillation. Written by international team of experts reflecting global best practices from centers with considerable experience in the use of catheter ablation. Format designed to serve the needs of electrophysiologists regardless of experience, electrophysiology fellows, electrophysiology nurses and lab technical staff. Covers hot topics such as new noninvasive imaging techniques, the treatment of challenging left atrial flutters, options for persistent atrial fibrillation and when a redo ablation is needed; and novel application of ablation targeting the autonomic nervous system.
