Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


More than three decades have passed since utilization of radiofrequency (RF) ablation in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. Although several limitations and challenges still exist, with improvements in catheter designs and delivery of energy the way we do RF ablation now is much safer and more efficient. This review article aims to give an overview on historical advances on RF ablation and challenges in performing safe and efficient ablation.
